Light Changes Everything

For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.      Psalm 36:9

There are sunsets that we remember our whole life long. Golden or rose-hued clouds can remind us of a time and place we cherished and/or captivate our hearts in awe.

Light changes everything. The mundane gray clouds that get ignored by one and all suddenly become miraculous, like nature taking on its rosy, gold party clothes in saying good night.

Funny how the full sun and noon sky do not pull at our hearts. THIS sunset light, angled as it is, just before darkness, charges sight with color that was missing just moments before.

So it is with the light of God in the hearts of those so blessed!

He changes every day into the extraordinary. He transforms dark days or mundane days into times glowing with meaning, as yet unknown.

He reforms the daily afflictions to daily exultations as HE creates newness within. 

Color bathes our gray, and light infiltrates our darkness...

Even the coming of the night cannot shadow our hope. His light shines within on the heart of faith, from within so that we can see with eyes of faith. Then, the darkness no longer holds any fear.

We see everything differently:

   +The gray zone of moral uncertainty takes on solid meaning -- shadowy or shining.

   +People in need seem different now. Because we see through HIS eyes, they are bathed in His light.

    +Learning about God and His ways becomes a privilege.

HIS light changes everything. His light reveals it all, the same yet alien, HIS reality. 

Tired of walking in dark shadows? Tired of walking under a searing sun?   Seek the light of life found in Christ! His light is unique, it hits us and shines on within our lives!
