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.”

Your story matters. Each time we are brave enough to allow people in and share what we've been through or currently going through, we’re trusting God with our testimony and giving Him permission to use our story to showcase His power or move in someone else’s life. Keep showing up in faith, being willing to tell others about what God has done for you and what He’s teaching you. Keep opening your heart with courage and vulnerability.  Because it’s not about US – it’s about HIM. We are just ...

There’s never a perfect Goldilocks season where you feel “just right.” You’re too young, and then one day you realize that you’re too old. There’s never an in-between.That is, unless you choose to believe that God can use you at ANY age for the plans He has for you.Use this as your reminder today that God doesn’t see you as the world sees you. He is not fazed by age-restrictions or traditional time frames. The Lord is never late and never early, and He wants us to trust His timing.When you re...

We don’t have to spend our life trying to measure up or please others around us. When God gives us direction, we can move forward with confidence. Not because we think we’ll be popular with others, but because we have the approval of God.
