The scripture reading for today is Luke 9:35.
"And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him."
This is the beautiful story of the Transfiguration. In Matthew the voice says, "In whom I am well pleased." Yet, as I read these scriptures, what I saw was light. We live in a world when our news is mostly reflected about the darkness in the world - people being shot and/or killed; people stealing from others; what is the scam of the day; what foolish challenge is hanging out there?
I need to reflect on God's gifts - the birds singing, the sunshine, the gentle rain, the blowing of the wind, the trees and flowers that bloom.
You see, I want God to let everyone know He is pleased with me. I want God to want people to hear what I have to say, I want to be a light in this world.
Dear God, Help my words show Your love with all I meet. In Jesus name, Amen
