When You Ponder What Do You See?
Sometimes it we find ourselves pondering on our life and what has gone before, but I wonder do we ever stop to celebrate it? Do we ever think about the challenges not just as obstacles, but as things we have overcome? When was the last time that you stopped to look forward?
To have a bigger vision for the future? Yes, there may be some water to cross, and there may be some valleys to traverse, but ultimately if we look up, we see that ever day there is a new day and new hope on the horizon.
Let’s make a plan this year to be a people who don’t let the water or the valley stop us, but the hope of tomorrow and the one above stir us to believe for even greater.
A City on a Hill,
We may have heard it said before, that a city on a hill cannot be hidden. For those of us who are Christians or who have read any of the bible, we would recognise this as a verse from the bible, but today I want to challenge those of us who have heard it a hundred times and those of us who have never heard it before. Would we be a people who would be like a city on a hill?
Would we be a someone who does not hide, but who shines.
We all have a choice in life, but the life that is in us, is the light that will come out of us.
What is in you? What needs to change in order for others to see that light shine out of you? We are told that the word of the lord is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path and that Jesus is that light. I wonder, do you have the light in you today? Have you invited him to live in your heart and shine through you?
There is Nothing Quite Like Light,
Light, it pierces the darkness, it breaks the dawn, it offers hope. Even the darkest space comes alight when a light is shone in it. What would happen if you allowed a bit of light to get into your heart and into those painful places? What would happen if you allowed the light to shine in the dark closet? Would it actually set you free? Because the bible tells us that truth sets us free, I wonder if that is the case here too?
What would happen if you didn’t have to stand on guard all the time of that closet that you don’t what anyone else to know is there? Would that mean your mind was free to go elsewhere or even to find more time to be there for friends and family?
