Distracted by Joy

Reflections for contemplative living

It is easy to get distracted by the despair and brokenness in the world. We are definitely challenged throughout our lives but we are called to be Easter people, to celebrate the unending love and companionship of a God, who cares deeply about us. God calls us towards a life of love in eternity.  This thought alone provides hope and this good news is nourishment for our journey. It sustains us along the way as we get to our final resting place.

How will you be distracted by joy and be glad with this day the Lord has given you?

Lord, despite my broken heart at times, give me the strength to carry on with Your love and compassion, bringing Your light into a dark world.
