Good morning, Light of the World!
Some souls refuse the Light of our Savior coming alive in them. To the human thought it can be a formidable Power. Too much to deal with. Maybe to discard and not deal with It would be better,
because, It is so much … and to keep It means there will surely be something we are to do with It.
But, oh. The Light, Beloved.
The Light that makes your heart its home – sees what it sees …
eternal right out in front,
shining ahead like a presence that goes ahead and reports back what it has found …
a perpetual reconnaissance of sorts.
And, with this Light the miracles of deep beauty in the world and in humans come to the surface. With this Light, one can see past the bad behavior to the good heart,
one can unearth the sweet spirit crushed by hatred,
one can understand much rather than be perplexed only.
His Light in you and me is the wand of knowing that can peel back the layers of personality, intention, and motives, and see the deep wild nature where His wonders are working … in His time … in His way.
Sometimes, His Light reports back what we do not want to hear, and we want to turn away and run. And, He reaches in beckons us stronger, “Do not put Me out, My love. Keep me. Hold on tighter than ever. You’ll see”.
Shine on in me, ChristLight.
I trust You here. Yes, even here.
“O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them.
… open my ears to listen.”
Psalms 40:5-6 NLT
