Let there be light!

Jean and I were just saying how bright it always seems to be here. That afternoon even when the sun went behind the clouds our view was still bright, probably as we have so much sea and sky before us and the mountains behind us, but even more likely is the condition of our hearts.

I remember in 1996 when we were leaving Scotland I said I would never be back there it was so dark and grey, Years later God showed me that it wasn't Scotland that was dark and grey but my heart, ouch!

What we have now in our relationship with Jesus is access to light all the time, even in what seems to be dark times. We don't have to walk in darkness but can have the light of life.

It is hard to imagine how we would get through some things that many people are going through, particularly news like our friend got who has been diagnosed with treminal cancer and another friend who has just died after a short illness. The Christian's answer is 'My Grace is sufficient says the Lord' but it would still be hard, not just for those who are dying but also for those who are left behind and will have to spend years without the one they thought would always be there. That is when you will need, not just God's grace but God's presence. Jesus promises us He will never leave us nor forsake us no matter how hard life gets and that is something that we need to get hold off before we need to so that in the days of trial we will be able to stand. Live now with the light of Jesus in your heart, hard times will still come but an unbelievable strength will be there, that strength is the presence of God dwelling within you.

Hebrews 13:5 New King James Version

5 For He Himself (Jesus) has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
