I wanted to write this note today because we all struggle with darkness......Do you ever notice how when someone turns the light out, you immediately feel a sense of anxiety and maybe even fear? Your mind begins to wonder and your fears and your anxieties start to surface. I submit today that the darkness gives rise to fear...ONLY FOR A MOMENT. You have to catch yourself quickly. Don't stay in the darkness too long..Shake it off, hold your head up and come out swinging.
We associate darkness with the unknown and forget all about the teachings from the bible. Paul used the images of the light and dark to speak to us about the nature of God and of our faith. We have to believe in our hearts that "THE LIGHT" makes visible what may be hidden in the darkness. But if we spend time in the light of God's word, when we consistently SHOUT OUT WITH PRAISE of this continuous PEACE and PRAISE that God gives to us. Our spirit will continue to grow. We will continue to blossom like a new flower under the sunlight....
Darkness and fear are sometimes used in the same sentence and people get stuck on that. Even though you may experience a short moment of fear...DO NOT BE AFRAID. Never let your fear paralyze you and keep you from moving forward. Keep moving forward and eventually you will come to a place where the light is visible....It will be so beautiful. When you emerge and come upon "your light", open your eyes and watch how "growth takes place in your heart". Not only a growth spiritually, but also you will feel more peace, more unconditional love than you could ever imagine. Your soul will be fed on a daily basis . So no excuses..Walk through this darkness that you are experiencing and LET YOUR SPIRIT GROW......
I have some amazing people in my life right now. I almost didn't see them because I too spent to much time "in that dark place".
God is so amazing though. He told me to get up, shake it off and come out swinging.
The people that enter your life are there for a reason, a lesson, a journey. You never know why at first. So start today living A LIFE OF INTENTION and allow those people AND those lessons to reveal themselves. There are people who touch you with their poetry, some touch you with their spoken word, or there are some with voices like an angel. My greatest joy has been people who have come into my life and TOUCHED MY SOUL....
You never know the power of your words. That is why it is so important to think very carefully before you speak. We all have a purpose, a calling or a path. Maybe yours is to light the way for others. God uses us all to administer the light for those who have yet to come out of the darkness....Start today with a new outlook and a new purpose and GET OUT OF THE DARKNESS...GOD BLESS.
