When I attended the Catholic Church, one of the things that tugged at my heart was the sense that we humans are responsible for sharing Love and the healing work done on Earth–that we, as our highest selves, are God’s heart to love, God’s eyes to see need, God’s feet to go there, and God’s hands to serve. To me that meant that we each have an overriding purpose in the grand scheme of things: We are needed, every single one of us.
All these years later, I have come to understand that God is everywhere, in everything and in everyone. Wherever there is Love, this is God, and wherever there is God, this is Love, and Love is always present, even if our fear-filled minds can’t perceive it. I think of God not only as a divine male, but also as a divine female, and that both energies created the universe.
You and I are much the same, for our most important need is to make a relationship with God within–yet your relationship and understanding may be very different from mine. That’s as it should be. We are granted by God/Love the right to find our way Home by whatever road we choose to take.
This is the song, ‘Here I Am, Lord,’ I woke up with this morning. It is a Christian song, perhaps Catholic. I’m not certain:
Here I Am, Lord
Lyrics by Daniel L Schutte
I who made the stars and night
I will make the darkness bright
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?
Here I am Lord
Is it I Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go Lord
If you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart
