Light

Light shines brightest because of the stark contrast to darkness. Darkness can get darker and vary in shades, can shapeshift, can destroy in levels or all at once, is tumultuous by nature and unforgiving hopeless. Darkness can change and vary and even disguise itself for a bit with light. But Light does not vary. It is always faithful, always true and relentlessly joyfully hopeful. You can cover it to a degree and pretend it does not stare penetratingly at you from behind the steel you erected but it never changes. Light is pure and distrinctive. It shows everything, uncovers every flaw but washes them out in the next breath. Light is God. Darkness is everyone else. We need God. We need His Light.❤

Then Came the Dawn

The darkest hours in history always preceded the dawn. That is still true. It will be true tomorrow. In many ways, light is gaining ground and yet darkness digs in, refusing to be extinguished without a valiant effort. However, darkness knows full well that it’s time is short. Those benefitting from the darkness will do so for only a short time and then will be imprisoned by it forever. Now is the time to choose light, the winner and champion. For the dawn comes. It always does. It always will. And one day soon it will do so forever. Do not doubt the light of dawn or its power. For darkness runs from it with its tail between its legs. Never doubt it. God is the light and Jesus ushers in the dawn.❤

The State of Things

The state of things is that of moving fast, keeping up, doing this and that, busyness, technology, expectations, societal norms and subsequent societal abnormal demands expected to be adhered to. I do not like the state of things. They feel wrong. They make my skin crawl. Darkness pervades. All before noon. So here I am a ball of misery? Nope. I am the light. I have what these people need. So do we all, all of us lights, those who are saved by Jesus Christ and know His truth, the only truth. We have the truth, the secret to being light in darkness and one day being out of here altogether and in heaven, away from dark forever. Imagine, one day soon we will not have darkness or evil anymore. It will be obliterated. So I can stand it a while longer to share my light. Maybe we can spread the light to more people so we have more company in heaven. Maybe we can share and spread it everywhere to everyone. That would be pretty cool. ❤

Walking Light-ly

Christians are called to be the light because our faith is based on Jesus Christ who is the Light of the World. And where Christians do not live in the light where they are, they are like a flashlight turned off…. no good to anyone and selfish as snot. Being the light is sharing our inner light wherever we go. Living the light turns on the fruit of the Spirit (our love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control) so everyone can see it. That way those in darkness (without the Holy Spirit) can snoteeee another better life option that heals and restores and makes everything better in every way. Live the light today. ❤

Another Virus Going Around

So many have this cold virus now. Many. It irritates the throat, causes coughing and sneezing, difficulty sleeping, etc. It is all around me. Thus far I and my kids have not caught it but my husband has and many at church today have. And as uncomfortable as a cold is, there is a greater virus going around people want to share readily, that of lazy Christianity. A lot is happening all around the world and we Christians need to be awake and pray and be lights in this dark world. ❤

70 Countries

This month, there are 70 countries represented who have read my blog. There are nearly 400 regular readers now from all over the world and I am honored. And it is my humble prayer that God be lifted up and Jesus Christ be presented as Lord of my life and I hope yours as well. There is nothing more important both now and into eternity. You can look at the news or look around for 10 seconds and see evil forces hard at work in myriad of ignorant or evil pawns to separate and discourage and destroy. People of God are the bright lights of truth and love, voices for love and peace. It is so very important that we rise up and pray like never before and pray more so as many are saved as possible before it all draws to an end and God decides to take us up to Him. Please pray. Pray for salvation, for peace, for Christians to wake up and pray, for our governmental leaders around the world to do God’s will wisely, to be ready when Jesus returns.❤

Matthew 5:14-16

Matthew 5:14. ‘”You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.’
