Only God can use “unorthodox” ways to pull a soul closer to Him, that they may seek Him where He truly is.
I’m on my way home from the grocery store, and I hear a rock song on the radio. Bad Company’s “Burning Sky”.
The opening lyrics are: (Blast of “Thunder”) The sky is burnin’ I believe my soul’s on fire, You are, I’m learning, the key to my desire.
All I think of is our Lord. My soul is on fire with desire for Him. I look forward to Holy Mass tonight as I could not make it to an early Mass.
The song itself is very “Unorthodox”. But the lyrics are very biblical. Reigniting my soul into a state of burning for Him in a much greater way to seek Him where He is.
How many times do we look at how our Lord, and how He became “Man” and think how “unorthodox” it was for Him, God, to do this for us.
Unorthodox meaning, contrary to what is usual, traditional, or accepted; not orthodox.
How many times do you hear that Vatican II was so Unorthodox, but YET it is another way our Lord SEEN how much the world was drifting away from Him and needed to come down closer again to the level of “Thought” once again to bring souls closer to Him. It’s not to say that the soul should stay in this condition, but rather seek the higher planes where He truly is. To never stop searching in HIGHER places where He can be found. What is unorthodox to some, is a calling to others. A calling to pull closer to Him.
When we think of how our Lord called the first Apostles, the “Orthodox” thought, how unorthodox. Who is this man who eats with sinners? They did not stay in their state of sin but rather grew in faith to love and serve Him, in proper form.
