From Darkness to Light

Today, I’m proclaiming the praises of Him who called me out of darkness into His marvelous light.
(2 Peter 2:9)

I woke up and my heart was heavy with the cares of the world and with the burden of myself. I had exerted very little energy, and yet I was so tired and worn down.

But I looked to Him, who calls me out of dark thoughts.
I praise Him because He changes the way I see.

He opens my eyes to see beauty in the ordinary.

He gives me purpose in the mundane.
I think of Him and my heart is glad.
Tears of sorrow are followed by tears of rejoicing.

I move about in light because He made me a light dweller.
I sit still.
I taste and see that He is good.
I drink deeply from His Word.
I am whole again.
Basking in light.

I was empty but now I’m full.

So, I proclaim the praises of Him who called me out of darkness into His marvelous…His glorious…His life-giving…soul-satisfying light.

He is Light.

And He is good.

    You encourage my heart, dear sister/friend. Thanks for seeing the beauty in pears, and for reflecting His light and beauty to me. "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all." Love you much!
