let there be light

Six years.

Six years ago, on that frigid January evening, I was hit by a drunk driver.

I honor this anniversary of my car accident because that was the day I finally saw the Light of Jesus.

Light has a way of illuminating darkness.

By nature, its design is to bring comfort, peace and warmth.

Its design is to guide someone through a darkened area safely.

When you are completely surrounded by darkness - emotionally or literally - our eyes by nature focus on any light we can make out.

When my life was completely dark and agony had swallowed me whole, I saw the Light.

The Light of Jesus.

In John 8:12 Jesus says, "I am the light of the world, whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

It took me nearly dying to focus on anything except the storm raging inside and outside of my heart. My eyes saw the Light and I followed it like a moth to a flame.

I don't think it's any coincidence that the first thing God speaks into existence is light.

(Genesis 1:3)

Light is incredibly important in our lives and it's meant to be spoken in the darkness!

You were not made to do life in the dark, that's why God created light in the first place!

When darkness has you surrounded and there's nowhere to go or nothing to see and all that's left is for you to fall on your knees and cry:

Speak Light into existence.

What I love about light is it comes in variety.

Sometimes we need the roar of a fire but sometimes we need the whisper of a candle.

Jesus is personified as both a Lamb and a Lion, so I truly believe He can be a Fire that you might need or a Candle that you might need. He can be a Roar or a Whisper.

My friend,

If you are surrounded by darkness and you feel like there is absolutely no hope, I am speaking Light into your life right now.

I am speaking that Roaring Flame to illuminate your battles and conquer your enemies and I am speaking that Whispering Flicker to bring comfort when that grief hits in the middle of the night.

You are not alone!
