I don’t think we realize the dark we live in when our whole lives evolve around ourselves. What we will do today. Who we will spend time with today. Where we will go today. When we will do what we do today. Why we will do what we do. How we will do what we do. Living can become an all about ME consuming and that is exactly why He came! He came to turn my eyes from little ol’ me, living in little me-ville, in a dark and empty existence that doesn’t go far past my own nose. He came to bring a dawning of light to experience GOD. To see the dream He dreamed of me before I ever was. He came so that I would be able to see beyond myself. He came so that I would be able to see HIM in all His glory and to see them…all my brothers and sisters.
ADVENT – the dawn has come to light the way …..to love
Our God who breathes stars in the dark – He breathes Bethlehem’s Star, then sakes on lungs and breathes in stable air. We are saved from hopelessness because God came with infant fists and opened wide His hand to take the iron-sharp edge of our sins. – Ann Voskamp
In every crevasse and crack of my soul I am in need of Him to light me and dawn upon my life. Without Him I am dry and crusted over. I know that without His daily touch my mind is dim, my heart is dark, and I am sorely lacking. The hope I have in Him is all I have ….all I have.
Light in me God
renew my life and heart
breath fresh in me
dawn upon my dark
He is lighting the way as I travel in this world.
Journal this or at least ponder and bring your thoughts to God:
Do you feel the creeping darkness of self slithering its way into your heart? How does the darkness keep you from seeing God and His Children? Call it out an lift it to God! Ask Him to shine the light and over take the dark.
All is grace,
