It’s The Light That Does It

11 Apr

It’s the light that does it. The flower is beautiful, but it’s the light that brings out the delicate textures and causes the flower to glow. Light does that. Think about that time when you were having trouble remembering something, then the lost memory came back into your mind and you said: “Oh, the light just came on!” Or, that time when I said to my friend: “That was very enlightening. Thank you.” Light brings clarity, reveals, renews, gives life. The stunning flower in the photo could not have lived without light.

May the lovely flower bless you today. We need beauty in our lives. And we need light…to see, to grow, to find our way through difficult or dark times. “I am the light of the world.” “The light shines in the darkness and the darkness cannot overcome it.” Today we enter a calendar week in which it seems that darkness wins over light, evil prevails. But the beautiful truth is that neither terrible times, nor tyrants, nor tombs can overcome Light. The Light lived in the amazing life of Jesus, and The Light lives now as a spiritual Presence that shines in and through you. You are the embodiment of Light. We are Christ in the world. “Let your light shine before others so that they may see…” May see Christ yet working in the world.

The flower is beautiful because the light shines through it. You are beautiful because The Light shines through you. As I write this, the first rays of morning light are rising above the mountains. Fitting, isn’t it. Here comes the Light.
