Let a Sunbeam of God`s Love…

Have you ever known a deep down whisper to surface in you?

Were you ever avoiding an answer to a persistent question?

Have you wondered … what is happening?

As these personal wonderings  keep coming



until the right moment brings them in


erupting unexpectantly,


Does listening to this inner voice, this movement of spirit,

bring some peace and still some lingering unrest?


“A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.”

God, the light of our life, lives in us,

loves us,

made each of us uniquely.

Come to know God through these questions.

Place this ‘wondering’, restlessness, into God’s hands

and ask that some insight, answer, word might be given to you.

Let a sunbeam of God’s love bring light to a shadow of wondering in your heart. Also, sharing this with a prayerful person may reflect God’s sunbeam to you.

    That is beautiful!

    It really makes you think; especially when you reflect on the fact that it only takes a little bit of light to drive away the shadows. Before you even see the sun, the sky is already becoming lighter.

    Think of how much of a difference someone can make if they just mention God’s love to a person living in a world of darkness, a person who has never even heard of God. That little bit of “light” in a world of darkness, could change that person forever.

  2. Angela, How true. God’s love surrounds us but God needs us to be the best self we can be. We need to make choices that He prompts us to do/be. Listening in one’s heart for the ‘message’ of how to be kind, caring, honest to others can then radiate this light into darkened corners.
