Seeking the Light

Max 2009 060

A few days away.  That’s the ticket!  (As Father Tim of Jan Karon’s books on the life in Mitford would say)

To help me gain perspective on things…. again. 

Being tired all the time doesn’t mean I have an excuse to avoid the Light.   As a matter of fact, the tiredness and exhaustion has caused me to seek Him all the more.  Are you that way too?

This is from a passage I read today, “Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.” (Mark 1:35 NIV)

“Very early”….while it was still dark…He sought the Light.  He was the Light, but yet, He needed to be strengthened.  He was God in the flesh, and because of that very flesh nature,  He got weary…just like you and me.  That is hard for me to fathom.  But He did.  He went through the day to day—experiencing hunger, thirst, exhaustion, friendship, love for His followers, sadness, even anger.  But without sin.  Until the cross.

There He took on my sin.  And your sin.

The Light of the world took on the dark ugly sin of the world, and while the enemy thought he had conquered my Lord, and even surmised that He had shut Him into the very darkness,  he, [the enemy] knew so well, the Light became even brighter on His resurrection morning!

He arose!  He is the Light of the world—having come so that we too could have LIGHT and life everlasting!

When your day seems dark—as they so often do—in these economic times, seek the Light.   He is the Light.

When it seems that all your world is being stripped away piece by piece, seek the Light.   He is your provider.

When it seems there is no answer for the questions that are plaguing your heart, seek the Light.  He is the Answer!

There is no darkness too dark that His Light and love cannot penetrate!

Trusting Him,

    Angie, first of all I want to say that I've read every single one of Jan Karon's Mitford series books. I want to live in this fictional town. I read that it was loosely based on Blowing Rock, North Carolina. Wow; that would be a fun place to have a retreat one day.

    I love that you reminded me that … “There is no darkness too dark that His light and love cannot penetrate!”

    Thank you for that, Angie. I'm so thankful for His light and life in me.

    Yes Angie, He is the light of our lives and the light showing us the way to go. He is the light in our darkness.
    Thank you for this precious reminder.

    Hi Angie,

    This is such an encouraging and uplifting post.

    “Being tired all the time doesn’t mean I have an excuse to avoid the Light. As a matter of fact, the tiredness and exhaustion has caused me to seek Him all the more.”

    Oh this touches me so where I am right now in my life. No matter what trial I am going through with extreme tiredness and exhaustion…Yes, Yes, Yes it causes me to seek Him all the more too my friend. Amen!

    Thank you for your encouragement and inspiration.

    Love, Peace & Blessings,

  • Melanie

    So good sweet sister! I love trying to 'see' the light in my mind…in a room where the darkness is palpable, it can begin with the size of a candle glow. Then, as on the Day of Pentecost, the sound of a rushing mighty wind and the light of His fresh fire, not consuming, but energizing and motivating us all to come closer to the flame!!! Wow! Can't wait to bask in the light for all eternity!

    Bless you,
    love you,

    That does not need anything added to it Angie,
    Wonderful thought AND truths.
    I needed to be reminded of this for it has been a trying past 3 weeks for me. But God has brought me through each thing and showed me some truths I needed to see.
    Thank you Dear one of the King.
    Elsie <><
