Years ago when our family was young and small, my husband and I were strolling through Sea World when we entered a tunnel. Now imagine plush greenery and beautiful flowers, clear skies and bright sunlight. The weather was so gorgeous that my head was practically in the clouds, only there were no clouds. That’s just how wonderful this day was.
Until right after we entered a tunnel. We had turned a corner and suddenly, all ears of our party heard a “clunk.” This lovely clunk was my knee against a bench, which I somehow totally missed seeing! The sudden change from bright sunlight to the somewhat dark tunnel caused me not to see what was right in front of me.
Have you ever been there? That situation on which you glance back and think “How did I miss that?”
He is my light.
And when I miss the truth as it stands in front of me? Often it is because I’ve failed to soak up the light of God’s Word. I’ve missed time with my God who sheds light on every dark subject, no matter its shape or size.
Maybe this week you’ve turned a corner, entered a dark place or even bumped directly into something far worse than a bench. Perhaps you’ve encountered a sudden change from light to darkness and it has caused you to miss something that is now obvious.
Now is a great time to get back on track; his light is always available.
There is no darkness so great that he cannot dispel it. His light shines brightly, never dimming; it is we who close our eyes tightly. We close them and fumble blindly because it seems the light is too bright for us. In truth, we just need to open our eyes and adjust.
What is light? Living in God’s heavenly truth.
When the light surrounds us, it’s becomes impossible not to see truth. We not only see the truth; we live in truth.
When we saturate ourselves in the light of God’s Word, visual reminders encourage us to remember the true light of the world.
The light brings clarity and peace. Because he is our peace.
I’m thrilled to share a little extra light with you today! The beautiful candle set above is from my friends at Dayspring. The table runner is reversible with the opposite side solid burlap for less festive days. The wood candleholders are gorgeous reminders of our need for both the Light of the world and the light of his word. Someone is going to win this lovely set of all three candleholders AND the table runner!! (Candles not included; but I do love the timer candles!)
