Somebody asked me last night after reading my Sunday reflection, “where is the direction?”
As I have shared with you, life is essentially directional and not about destination. Life is more of dealing with the questions “why” and “what” than of “where”. When we search more of the where, we can get frustrated because in this journey of life, we really do not know the place where we should be or would be. As we journey in life centered on Christ in prayer and silence, the more we still do not know of what will happen next, of what we’ll see next – yet, we are so excited. We continue living because we believe, and most of all, we love! When we love, we experience God. That is when we begin to realize that indeed, heaven is more than a place or destination but a presence — that is also when we find our direction. Here is a soothing music from Earth, Wind and Fire called Devotion from their album aptly titled Open Our Eyes released in 1974 that points to a direction. Enjoy!
Through devotion, blessed are the children
Praise the teacher, that brings true love to many
Your devotion, opens all life’s treasures
And deliverance, from the fruits of evil
So our mission, to bring a melody
Ringin’ voices sing sweet harmony
