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)
The one great thing about Christ's love for us is that it never dies! He's forever with us. Even when we think we are alone and wandering around in the dark, he is guiding every step we take! It's no longer a conscious decision for me, it's a way of life. His love has become such a big part of my being that it feels unnatural to step outside the box. He provides everything I need!
But there are times when to walk in the darkness would be easier! Our ability to continue to want to do things our way, our stubbornness and our pride can cause us to want to turn off the "light" just for a bit. The problem is, once our souls are captured by Christ, he doesn't let them go! His guiding love is what surrounds us in those moments. He reminds us that we are his and that he will not allow us to fail! And there is not "dimmer" switch either. His love is just as bright in our own despair as it is in our joy ~ we just need to take off the sunglasses and focus!
Today, focus on what he's done for you and what he will do for you as you continue your journey! He has great plans for all of us if we just leave the light on!
