Sunny Days

I always think that Easter is a sunny day, but in Colorado, that’s not always true. Our weather can be quite unpredictable, regardless of the weathermen & their best forecasts.
No matter what the clouds do, we can have light in our hearts because Jesus is the light of the world. And celebrating His resurrection this weekend, is the exclamation point to living in light & love! I can totally appreciate that we go through seasons & struggles that can darken our mindset or discourage our hearts. But let’s remember that Jesus, the light of the world, lives in our hearts & His lights can illuminate any darkness or discouragement in which we may find ourselves. Today can be a sunny day my friend 🙂

Eclips-ing

The moon eclipsing the sun today is a noteworthy event & hopefully you have some eclipse glasses so you don’t look directly at the sun during the eclipse. I read about a man who looked at the sun in the last eclipse & his vision was permanently damaged – no bueno.
Although it’s rare, the bright light of the sun can indeed be diminished & even eclipsed. But let us never forget that Jesus, the Light of the world, can never be diminished nor eclipsed. So let’s be certain that we don’t allow shadows, clouds, confusion or darkness into our souls, emotions, thoughts or outlook.
How can we keep Jesus as our light?

  • Pay attention to what you let into your thoughts & soul
  • Do you thoughts / emotions gravitate to darkness or light?
  • Remember that Gods Word is a lamp unto our feet & light unto our path – Ps 119:105

#lookforJesus Light in darkness

Many things happen in the dark: sleeping, recovery, deception, dreams, shepherds in the field, Jacob wrestling with an angel & lots more. Just like any 24 hour increment, our lives have times of bright illumination & times of darkness & even uncertainty. When I think about darkness, I’m reminded of Ps 23, where it talks about walking in deep darkness & God walking right alongside us.
Whether we feel or see it, Jesus, the light of the world, is walking with us, steady, faithful, loving, kind, patient & reliable.
Jesus is our light.
