A light goes on and settles your heart

Morning: Psalm 119.97-120; Jeremiah 8:18-9:6; Romans 5:1-11
Evening: Psalms 81, 82; John 8:12-20
Prophets pray. Prayer is two-way: 1. listen then pass on what you hear – which makes sense; or, 2. plead people’s cause – but, why is it necessary to plead with God, who loves us? … Well, it isn’t, but it does help to let off steam sometimes at how crazy the world seems! Humankind longs for equilibrium and harmony … to be “reconciled to God”.  Jesus sheds light on things, if you let him, and you see the world again for the first time. A light goes on, you can breathe, and that settles your heart.
