Just Enough Light for This Moment

I’m pleased to be posting today at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, as part of the series, “When His Story Becomes My Story.”

Last week, I looked at the testing and temptations we go through in this life and how God will use those times to strengthen us and draw us closer to Him in I Am Tested, Yet Unbreakable.

Today, I’m talking about the Light in the darkness. No matter how lost I may feel, I always have a Guide because the light God gave us through His Son, Jesus, can never be extinguished by the darkness.

I have a few strategically placed nightlights in my house. Not because I have small children, but so I don’t have to turn on the bright overhead lights if I get up in the middle of the night. While I usually prefer bright light to dim, it’s too much in the dark night. My eyes can’t adjust from darkness to bright light quickly enough. I blink and squint and shade my eyes. It’s too much light all at once, but the soft glow from the nightlight is just enough light for that moment.
God has always given light to His people. At creation…
…God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. Genesis 1:3-4 NIV
He led the Israelites…
Please join me at Gloria Dei to read the rest of my post…Just Enough Light for This Moment.

In Christ,

  1. I loved your comment that no matter how lost you feel, you have a guide. I think we all need the dark sometimes to appreciate that beautiful light.
