Itís me again. Just another confused heart searching for answers. Iím so weary from trying to figure out the answers all by myself. Forgive me for searching for wisdom from everywhere else and from everyone else. I figure Iím long over due for a lesson from the Master.
Before we begin todayís lesson- could I just ask one question? Have you ever been confused? Were you confused when you descended from the side of your Father into the arms of your mother? Was it disorienting to go from the bright and pure light of a sinless heaven into the darkness of a sinful world- first seen in the dim light of a manger? I canít imagine what it was like to hear the songs of angels replaced by the sounds of animals. But then again, perhaps you were so close to your Father that you never stopped hearing those angels.
Was your walk here on earth sometimes paved with such grief and sorrow that you questioned your path to Calvary? Were any of the tears you shed at Lazarusís grave because you were homesick? Did the denial of Peter or the betrayal of Judas make the pain of the cross even worse? Are you reminded of my sin every time you see the scars in your hands?
Itís really such a silly question. Of course you- an omnipotent God- cannot be confused.
So the next time I am blinded by the darkness of sin- may you shine a light on my path. The next time I have a million questions and no answers- may you whisper words of wisdom to my soul. May I be so full of your Spirit that when I am squeezed by temptation or despair- that what comes from me is a reflection of you. And when I am confused- may your love be my compass.
Teach on- oh Master- teach on.
