“A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14
Light. Have you ever truly considered it’s purpose? We instantly feel better after flicking the light on when we step into a dark room. It’s an immediate comfort.
It’s the same reason why night lights are used and why we automatically become unafraid of going downstairs into the basement.
When the power goes out we run for lamps and candles so that we don’t have to navigate through the dark or in other words, so that we can see where we are going.
Last week it seemed as if someone played a cruel joke on us and cut out all the lights in the world–it was dark. None of us could see where we were going. We were all trying to navigate our way through the dark which caused even more chaos.
It’s still very much a dark time as we sit in utter confusion trying to make our way through the thick black smoke wishing that it all “would just go away.”
If there is one thing that I can say about the darkness is that it’s doing it’s job.
It’s functioning as it should. Instilling fear into the people and a lack of hope, making it difficult for us to find a way out.
It’s why we look for the light at the end of the tunnel. There’s hope there. There’s hope in light. Where is yours?
We can’t find it and people are looking for it. We need you to shine it.
My prayer to you all:
In this dark time, I pray that you find comfort. Find comfort in knowing that there is light within you and you have the power and authority to turn on the switch at any given time. Your very life provides hope and brings comfort to someone with whom you cross paths with. We need you desperately now more than ever to come from underneath the bushel. Shine your light. Shine.
