Last night I was washed over with an Amazing feeling of Divine Grace. Maybe it was just a hormonal shift, but whatever, I'm not complaining. :-) I had been thinking about the nature of faith and love and how difficult it seems for some people to see the Light. The radio played a series of Love songs in response to the revelations I began to write.
Love Is Divine
It must be for it to allow every single, wretched one of us to be loved by at least one person in our lives. Love is blind, as they say. The Divine is blind too, but voluntarily so. That's where the forgiveness comes through - in that blind spot. To forgive (and to love) someone in totality requires the decision to willfully ignore or overlook and voluntarily forget their negatives, whatever they might be. It's often difficult to maintain such mental tricks, but Divine Love makes it easier. That is the Power of Love.
Where Love Is
Love is that boundary between fantasy and reality. Not that love can't or doesn't exist in reality, but love is the bridge or the door linking the two. Looking from outside it might appear that love and faith have blinded people, but that's not quite right. In the Light of Love things just look a lot different. Call it blind faith if you like, but I prefer to call it looking through the eyes of the Divine.
And I'm sayin' a prayer for the desperate hearts tonight...
