The eyes of the Lord rove to and fro over the earth, searching for the people whose heart is turned towards Him.
He sees the souls of His creation. He sees the fire of His Word kindled inside His chosen. He sees the Light of the Holy Spirit and He sees the Darkness of the lack thereof.
The shadows populate the earth, the shadows of the blind and the deaf, the shadows who do not know the Way, or the Truth, or the Light.
The blanket of darkness cloaks the Earth, but here and there sparks of Light are struck. The Light beams forth in the Darkness, and the Darkness cannot overcome it.
The Light bears forth strength in its very heart, for it is the Temple of the Spirit of the Tetragrammaton. It sends out the Truth of the Light that dwells within. Its Temple holds the Body and Blood of that God which gives the Temple Life.
The Dark sees the Brilliance of the Love of Yahweh, indwelling the Light and the Life and the Spirit. The Dark understands it not, but some hearts ask for understanding, and where Darkness was, Light spreads forth, vanquishing the Shadow. New Lights spark and kindle over the shadows of the Earth, and the Eye of the Lord rejoices as the Lights appear and grow stronger in the Consuming Fire of His Love. His Love burns away all Darkness.
O Lord, may we be Lights in the Dark.
