That there’s good. That there’s love. Isn’t this enough and more than enough? Yes.
THIS – this good – This is what needs not only remembered (its own challenge!), but insisted on.
Keeping good things in our line of sight may not always be an immediately practical matter: God knows that there is plenty wrong in the world and that it clamors loud and noxious to distract and despair.
But no matter what, no matter how ugly the ugliness presents, it does not win in the end. Therefore, our challenge is to embrace, exalt, insist upon the truth that is:
that those who love, who believe in the One Who shines brighter, have constant, glorious opportunity to thwart the dark.
He reigns supreme and glorious; GOOD. Hallelujah, it’s a thing! THE thing! Always present, always possible, GOOD.
Praise and thanks that it’s so, great God. Make us strong and courageous, excellent rememberers, effective insisters. You are glorious… and GOOD.
