The Light at the End of the Tunnel
“Let the groaning of the imprisoned come in before you; in accord
with the greatness of your arm preserve those doomed to die.” Psalm 79: 11
This verse reminds me that we are all imprisoned by our sins, and God is the only One who can free us. During Lent we are reminded that God sent His only son to die for us and open the gates of Heaven. God is the light at the end of the tunnel. We should all be striving for Heaven, but we can only be on the right path if we follow God’s will. God can free us from the worldly distractions and lead us to a prosperous life that leads to an eternity with Him. Those who are imprisoned (all of us) must ask God to lead us to do His will so that our souls may be preserved and we might have eternal life in Heaven.
Lord, Help me to see your light in the world and follow your will. Preserve my soul so that I may live forever with You. Please help me
to give up my worldly needs so that I may love You more entirely. Amen.
Dn 9: 4b-10, Ps 79: 8-9, 11, 13, Lk 6:36-38
