UBC Jul 4 - Through The Darkness

Ultimate Blogging Challenge  and  NaBloPoMo - Day 4

Through the darkness we see the light.

Some days ago just as I opened the curtains I saw this light shining in the sky - actually there were 2 of them out in the distance and then one came closer and  looked very bright.

Of course both lights were aeroplanes. They go by often but the light looked so different in the darkness - so much brighter and not only did it catch my eye but it kept me riveted. And as I watched it, so many thoughts came into my mind:

I kept thinking that for me to see the plane this way, the darkness was needed. Perhaps that's why sometimes the Lord throws difficulties our way because that is when we start to see His light, appreciate His light. So when you are going through difficult times, know that the light will shine through. And just like I knew the 2 lights in the distance were aeroplanes, know that His light exists.

One of the lights came forward quickly, the other stayed in the background awhile. Sometimes though we are on the right path, our time to reach our destination / goals / destiny is not there yet. We need to wait until it is our turn to line up on the landing path. In trying to move things too quickly we may end up in difficulties, moving too slowly and we may miss the opportunity to land.

May you see the light through the darkness.


Warm Regards

  2. Suzy that was very powerful! You make a very good point that God is always there but we sometimes lose focus of that until we are in a place where it is just him and us. When we are at our weakest moments or in need of him he always shows up. He is even there when things are going great but we sometimes fail to acknowledge him. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Thou we know that there's light after every darkness... or light is more powerful than dark... sometimes we tend to forget it... and stress over the darkness.

    Very powerful post. :)
