Shalom Dear Readers,
I hope this simple and short message finds your hearts joyful.
I am happy to find my way here and excited to share what the Lord has been doing in my life.
Let’s talk about darkness that brings false fear into our lives. It has a way of coming into our lives to either keep us put, or lead us astray. As I was walking down from my office tonight with one of our students/children we had a power outage for like three minutes or more, and we immediately stopped to the fear of falling or taking the wrong path…
The darkness that brought fear of either falling or taking the wrong path made us rethink of our own ways to continue going, and trusting our instincts to not fall. I must admit my student was braver than I was.
We ended up agreeing to go ahead and keep walking but very carefully. We kept trying so hard to “see”, and walk in the darkness. We saw trees (nature) ahead of us, and they kinda helped us to know where we were going, but still it wasn’t that easy! Sometimes we try so hard to trust ourselves, the nature, things God created or worse yet what we have created to lead us in the right direction, but it will never do so as long as His Light is not on in us to show us the right way to go.
That darkness made us stop for a while to rethink ways we were going to keep going. When we are in a spiritual darkness, it makes us stop from where we were going, and delays us to reach where we were going. It will also create false fear, and make us work so hard to find our own ways to keep going…
Back to my student and I dark moment! We saw a car with its headlights on a bit far from us, even though it gave us some light it wasn’t enough to lead our way to where we were going! We were going in different ways! Sometimes we see/have people in our lives with lights on, but because we aren’t close to them enough for them to light our paths, or because they aren’t going in the same direction as us, it doesn’t really help us see. Besides, the car was way faster than us that it kinda gave us some light for really few seconds.
So many lessons learned in a really short period of time! I will always need God’s Light for my path to always be clear, for me to not fear, and be a stagnant christian. I will also need His people going in the same direction as I am close to me to light my way when I don’t have my light on or when it is low, because I need to be in Him to recharge. I need to have God, and fear God to fear away false fear, and keep me away from false fear…
John 12:35 Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going.
