Jesus answered them, “Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have good news brought to them.” Matthew 11:2-5
We search in the darkness for answers that are at our footsteps, but we know not to look for them. We enter through the secret doors of our wardrobes only to find a barren wasteland of snow and ice; this is not what we desire.
However, we do meet enlightened messengers alone the way, perhaps it is Tumnus leading us to the warmth of permanent summer or Jadis bringing a long winter. If we only believe in Truth and those whom we share this with believe also is when we see the brightness of the sun. But, no, we turn our backs when offered with finery: jewels, warm meals, comfortable homes. We find ourselves dwelling in the lands of the wicked princes, who only serve themselves.
We search for God; we search for Jesus; we search for the house of God, the one with many rooms. We trust princes who promise us salvation, but we do not experience the calm and love brought by the Son of Man. We love calm, but constantly enter the quarters of the wicked and the self-serving princes.
Find refuge in the eternal love of the living God. As the cloud recedes from vision, we are blessed with a rainbow of chances illuminated by the God’s true sunlight.
