Pushing Back Darkness

Jesus: The Light of the World



… the sun will no longer be your light by day, and the brightness of the moon will not shine on you. The Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your splendor (Isaiah 60:19-20). 

2020 was filled with unquestionable dark moments and maybe for you, at times, those dark moments surrounded the depths of your soul that it became almost impossible to see Jesus as the light of your life. 

In Genesis 1:3 God says “Let there be light, and there was light…” but God doesn’t stop there. Scripture goes on to say “...and God separated the light from the darkness.” 

We just celebrated the birth of our Savior and are entering into a new year, hopeful for what 2021 has to offer. Despite what 2020 brought to each of us, we can enter 2021 with the confidence that Jesus IS the light of our world. 

The light, in all its glory, illuminates and pushes against the darkness. The light provides hope. It provides an opportunity. An opportunity for you and I to choose to push against the darkness, expose the deepest parts of ourselves that maybe we want hidden, and step into the light...believing and trusting that Jesus is who He says He is: The Light of the World. 

Take hope in 2021! Jesus is the lamp beneath our feet. Walk into each day this year with the confidence that the brightness of Jesus shines through you and you have access to the Light right now and in the days to come! 

Revelation 22:5… ‘Night will be no more; people will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, because the Lord God will give them light, and they will reign forever and ever.”

How often do we find ourselves feeling pulled in too many directions, leaving little of us to truly honor the people and things we choose to devote our time and energy to? When I try to imagine what this strive for “worldly balance” looks like, I imagine a juggler or plate-spinner trying to keep things in perfect rhythm without dropping the ball (or plate, if you will). If you don’t know what I am referencing with plate-spinning, pause your reading and go look it up. Prepare to experience you...

How often do you find yourself talking to the Lord and all of a sudden catch yourself deep in a thought involving something that you’re anticipating - totally separated from your prayer? I often catch this happening on my commute to or from work, especially on those days that I hit snooze one too many times or try to squeeze in one more thing and don’t prioritize giving the Lord space to join me in the step-by-step parts of the day.

As I write this, I can’t help but imagine God’s presence with me like a loving father who has graciously been trying to help me solve a seemingly-tricky math problem on an assignment that I should have grasped a while ago. I can clearly envision Him giving me a warm smile and gently patting me on the back as the light bulb finally goes off in my head, and I feel so silly for not understanding the overall concept long before now. I hope this message resonates with my friends who grapple with d...
