Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Revelation 21:1-15 Luke 20:1-2
It makes a difference to read and to heed road signs. Similarly life’s journey is much more productive and ‘safe’ when signs of God’s Kingdom near are read and heeded. This is the truth Jesus proclaimed in his public ministry and taught to his disciples. With holy help, and an open heart, I can read and heed signs of the Holy Spirit of God nearby, in the Eucharist, the eyes of children, the lives of my Inuqatiit (the people I am on earth with) and through the saints, angels, graces, and joys that weave in and around my days. Holy Spirit, help me to read and heed the signs of God’s kingdom near.
Happy are those whose strength is in you, in whose heart are the highways of God.
