2014-04-02 - The Faintest Light
One night fairly recently, I was having some trouble falling asleep. My back was aching, and I was trying to find a more comfortable position so I could relax. It was one of those moments that I thought about how dark I felt on a spiritual level. Exercise, prayer, study and different things - to try and help left me - left me feeling quite dark.
Then I looked over across the room, and on top of the computer desk was the wireless internet box. It had some small green flashing lights on it, and so in the midst of near complete darkness, there was light. I started to think about how that is so spiritually relevant.
Even in the midst of what seems like spiritual darkness, there is always a small ray of light that eliminates darkness. Inviting Jesus into your life, to be the boss of everything, means he is your light. He will take the heat. He will manage things, so when it seems completely unbearable, there will be a way out in his timing. He will lift your spirits and show you that small little light, to remind you hes still there.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:5)
