Following The Light Day And Night

John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

At 6am this morning, as my little fur baby Mickey went about his business, I stood staring up at the sky. It was dark, and ominous in appearance, clouded over as a thunderstorm loomed close.  However, there was a shimmer of beautiful brightness, that couldn’t be hidden or contained.  The bright light reached out to me, and offered a grand sense of comfort, and security.  Brilliant hues of orange, and pink, sprinkled through allowing a prism, to appear as a rainbow across my window.  God’s peace.

Peace and security might seem far in the distance during these shifting sands of time given the what’s happening in and around the world -and now the protests breaking out across colleges here and across the oceans. Political strife, financial ruins, border chaos, religious persecution, and so much more.

That rainbow brought more than a semblance of peace my way. It brought an inner joy that engulfed my spirit and reaffirms my faith, and belief in His presence, even in a time of darkness.

God is my peace. God is our peace. God is your peace.

I notice more, and more as of late, that my God moments come just in time.

Because God, is never late. Because God, is always on time.

God brings what He has to bring, when He needs to bring it, and when we aren’t aware that we need it, He still brings it. 

The reality of faith can be heightened by circumstances, or a keen awareness of “moments” during our lifetime. Tune into God, and let His presence be balm for your soul, as you graft onto the vine which is Christ.

Christ is LIFE.  Christ is LIGHT.

So, in your quiet moments, and not so quiet moments, look for the “light.”

Through the dark…know that the light, will always come shining through.

Just in time.

Because God is never late.

“Father God, thank You for Your light that is always on time, all the time, every time, Your light is my joy and I thank You, in Jesus precious name, Amen.”
