Christ shines God’s divine light into our hearts and into our lives

“So we wonder and daydream On our own immortal theme. God’s life hums within our soul, And Christ’s transforming glow Makes us more than what we seem.” (“More than what we seem” ©️ 2009)

In all of God’s creation, we are the ones who “daydream.” We can see hope and promise in rainbows and hum merrily an inspiring melody that comes from an arrangement of sounds. … And we can appreciate that the sun’s light is a spectrum of color and not just a bright glare. Which reminds me of the small prism that a friend gave me. Each day it draws in the sunlight and splashes it as rainbows all over the walls and floors and furnishings! And that is how Christ works in our lives. Operating as a prism, Christ shines God’s divine light into our hearts and into our lives as a “transforming glow,” a multitude of colors. The Lord’s joy and intensity wash through consciousness, flooding us with vibrancy, pushing back at depression and debility. The Lord’s strength radiates throughout our being, protecting us and sustaining us. And the Lord’s love warms our heart, replacing fear and hatred with compassion and forgiveness. … All the beautiful colors of who we are come to us through Christ with his fuller, more abundant life (John 10:10). (Living Calm, chapter 40. ©️ 2016
