“I couldn’t do that, people are watching”
It’s exactly because people are watching that we must do it
Do what is light and love and true
For if we do not, if we are silent,
we silence the Holy Spirit inside us
the voice, our Jiminy Cricket,
that instructs on all that is pure and good and holy.
Do it so that people will see,
for their sake and for yours,
a taste of something good
Oh the sweet, sweet blood of Jesus
Cleansing and nourishing
to the body and soul
His sacrifice is our atonement
His suffering is our joy
for now He stands as king and LORD
above all the nations and angels and Universe
All of us call out His praise
For He is glorious and wonderful and good
His blood flows free through my veins
Cathedrals used to use gargoyles to ward off demons
Samurai used ferocious masks to intimidate enemies
God use what scares me to sanctify me
So that the cathedral of my soul would stand firm
For eons in You.
and the glory.
Contemplating the servants of the Divine
the rich history
gives you a greater appreciation,
a holy community
to draw from when you feel alone
Verily you carry the seed of these heroes past!
Live in light of that ineffable truth.
