I was in Adoration, and song lyrics kept coming into my head. “I once believed love would be black and white, but it’s golden.” (Lyrics from Taylor Swift’s song “Daylight”) I tried to shake the lyrics out of my head and refocus, but these lyrics kept coming to the forefront of my thoughts. It seemed The Lord was trying to tell me something through these song lyrics that kept flowing in my head.
As I’m staring at The Eucharistic Lord in front of me, my eyes fall on the golden monstrance that He dwells in. I observe the golden flicker of the candle lights that glow, the golden icons catch my eye, the golden detailing throughout the church glimmers, and the white altar seems to glow with a golden hue.
As I gaze around the church noticing all the golden glow that surrounds me, it dawns on me that God’s love is that golden love, and the world can only offer a mere black-and-white version of what we truly long for. God is inviting us into a deeper and more poignant love, one that is “golden” if you will. Many people in our broken world will sometimes wonder “Is this all there is to life?” But it’s important to know, that there is more to life. God wants us to live life in abundance, and experience His love to the full capacity.
God’s love is golden.
The Eucharistic Lord is inviting you to a love so deep and rich, that it emanates a golden glow. The golden glow in the glory of The Resurrection, the golden - warm inviting light of Heaven, the golden shimmer of the glorified body that lives on eternally.
God’s love is golden.
Dear one, the Lord is sweetly inviting you to a love so gentle and warm, one as soft as the sunlight and as rich as a castle made of pure gold.
Baptized one, deep in the interior of your soul, The King of Heaven and Earth dwells enthroned within your center; He is arrayed in gold, and desires for you to experience His wealthy love.
Renounce your black-and-white ideas of the world, of love. Let the stone hiding your heart be rolled away by He who was raised up from the dead, and step forth with Christ The King, into the beautiful glory of The Resurrection.
There’s a love far deeper, and far sweeter waiting for you sweet soul, and this love is rich, this love is golden.
