‘And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.’ (Genesis 1:3 ESV)
Father God’s first recorded words. Later, we are told “you are the light of the world”. DearOne-that is YOU. Intriguing. Fascinating.
His first command in creation is His expectation of you and me every day … even on this very Tuesday. Not only that, but we are also to see the light in others. How many times will you stop your thoughts from being hyper-critical and instead, choose to find the light in the souls around you?
They show up in fancy cars, jewels, with muddy boots, greasy hair, skin dark as old oil, white as a white rise petal. They appear as a frail child, as a coach, a hurting widow, as a drug dealer, a boss, model material, teacher, parent, scared animal.
Beloved, the God of Glory takes notice when you and I learn to recognize the greatness of a soul’s light in all its varying forms.
Wild souls. They show up in many sizes, shapes, colors, conditions. Stay awake my precious friend, so you can recognize the light in its many shades.
