I’m sitting in the dark writing this blog post by candle light. I came home to another power outage. There was only enough time to put my groceries in the refrigerator and light a candle, before the sun disappeared behind the hills and shot it’s colorful rays into the twilight.
As I sit here watching the flickering flame cast its dancing shadows across the paper, I can’t help but think of the blessing of light. It’s something I don’t always appreciate until I’m sitting in the dark. There is so much I can’t see! I lived a portion of my life that way- “spiritually” sitting in the dark. I didn’t know what I was missing, because I couldn’t see it. Darkness hides a lot of things.
Just one candle lights this page enough for me to write, and it was just one Name that brought light into my life enough to cast out the darkness and expose everything hidden there. One Light shines bright enough to change a life and He is Jesus. He’s the light of the world and the light that shines in our hearts.
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” -John 8:12
“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” -2 Corinthians 4:6
It’s one thing to sit in a dark house when the electricity is off, it’s entirely another to live in the dark. Jesus offers us life in the light. All we have to do is follow Him, and He lights the way!
