I crave the light. There was once a time I couldn’t get enough light. The winters in Michigan just do not allow for much light. Being so close to Lake Michigan, the clouds cover the short days of light. I crave the light.
Sometimes I even allow artifical light to quench my craving. It never does.
1 John 2:8
Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.
Even in darkness, when the light shines, it brings with it a sense of calm.
If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
When his candle shined upon my head, and when by his light I walked through darkness;
The light is lingering now that the days are passing to spring. My cravings are being satisfied.
His mercies are new every morning. The sun rises every day. The light will always be there. And for the days when the clouds come. I have God’s promises that the light will shine again.
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.
May my light shine and reflect my Lord. My eyes may not always perceive the brightness of the light because of the clouds, but may I always reflect the true light and not only my perception of the light.
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid
