Spots of Light

Just when the clouds move in. When every door closes and you’re left there in the dark, the spots of light appear, there in the cracks. It may not seem like much to others, but it’s just enough to remind you that you weren’t meant to live in the darkness, deep in your discouragement and despair. You were meant to keep looking for the tiny cracks of light. They’re there and they appear at just the right moment. You see them when you’re second guessing and doubting. 

When you’re questioning your efforts and your motives.

He reminds us of the mission set before us and makes the path a little straighter. When we realize that what lies beyond those tiny cracks is abundant Son light and we see Him waiting there and quickly realize He’s been there all along.

May the Lord of all creation bless you today with His peace, His presence and His strength to continue watching for those spots of light.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8:12) NIV
