When The Light Goes Out

A few days ago, the power went out. It was only out for around an hour, but that one hour felt like several hours. I wish I could say I was super productive during that hour, but if I did I’d be lying. The moment after the power went out, I grabbed my camping lantern to rid the room of darkness. I didn’t want to sit in the darkness. I wanted to be near the light.

My whole street was thrust into darkness. We sat idly by waiting for the power to come back on.

After the power came back on, I couldn’t help but think of how we may all of a sudden be thrown into a dark place. A place where we feel there is no end in sight. No light at the end of the tunnel.

Why choose to feel helpless if we don’t have to?

God is the Light of the world.

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

Ps. 119:105

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”

His Word is our guidebook for this life.

He is the Light that will direct our footsteps.

Yesterday, at church was Vision Sunday, where we go over the theme and vision for the year for the church.

The theme this year: Be the Light.

How fitting.

While God is our source of light, we can be shining light’s for God’s glory in our actions toward others.

Are we reflecting Christ in what we do?

So, today no matter what you may be going through,  seek God’s light and seek to be a light for Him.
