Icons: Diaries of Divine Direction

Icons tell more than a story.

They explain the faith

As brought to us by God

Who came in the flesh Himself.


They illustrate the love of God

Through the lives of those who lived

And breathed to their last breath

The Holy Spirit among us.


Icons point us to our own inner journey

And guide us on our exterior one.

They open us to God who walked in our shoes

And remind us that God has never left our side.


We are clear on what icons are

And what they are not.

We do not worship them.

We do not mistake them for God.


They do not have magical powers.

They are not good luck charms.

Genies do not pop out of them

I can assure you.


But they do attract demons

And people who want them destroyed.

They attract every heinous response

Because they silently speak the truth.


Icons are depictions about Divine directions.

They are diaries about Divine destinies.

Icons are not the faith itself.

But they do enliven the faith we live.


Pray.
