“Have you ever thought about how amazing clouds are” my husband drew me out of my thoughts as we traveled down the highway towards my mother’s. “Huh?” I didn’t comprehend. “Have you ever thought about how amazing clouds are,” he asked again. “I mean you can’t really see through them, but the light can get through. We aren’t driving in darkness. The sun filters through them.” I thought about it for a minute.
This Little Light of MineMay 12
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”John 8:12 NIV
“The light is so strong it goes through them,” I said.
“Makes you think about how strong light is. If you have a huge room full of darkness, even the tiniest light will brighten the room. The light is so much more powerful than the darkness.”
By this time, my mind was reeling with the implications of his statement. Light is so much more powerful than the darkness. Just one little bit of light will dispel the darkness all around it.
For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the lightof the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6 NIV
I thought of the power of ONE. One sun shines to light the earth. Christ was One Light who came to a dark world to share His love and His light. As Christians, we each carry one light. As small as our lights may be, they will bring light to the darkness around us.
I can make a difference to the people around me. I carry His light to scatter the darkness around me. I sat a little straighter, tightened my seatbelt a bit, and smiled.
Thank you Lord for being the Light in this world. We know that your Light is stronger than any amount of darkness. Help me to let my little light shine.
