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.”

Finding purpose in every opportunity
Finding purpose in every opportunity

April 07, 2021

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Ephesians 5:15-17 I don’t know about you, but there are times when I get so caught up in ‘what is my purpose’ that I tend to lose sight of what God has right in front of me. I love the scripture in Ephesians that highlights ‘making the most of every opportunity,’ as a beautiful reminder that each da...

Ecclesiastes 3:1 - “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under Heaven:...” Winter has come and gone, once again; and ladies, Spring is here!  Have you noticed (and I am sure you have...) that the seasons never change their order?Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall. Just as specific as God was with the order of each season, He is even more specific with the plan/order for our lives. In Daniel 2:21, we are reminded of God’s sovereignty in the midst of all seasons:  “He changes...
