Light of Life

My prayer today is a simple one, and I invite you to join me if you feel so led:

Dear Lord, I thank and praise You for being the only Light who has the power to banish the darkness and give life to all who earnestly seek You. Thank You for continuing to shine Your light of truth and love on  me at all times, and for filling me with Your breath of life each day.

Due to Your great love for me, I have no reason to walk in darkness unless I choose to do so – a most unwise choice. By Your grace and enabling, help me to stay in the light of Your love each day, rather than walking away in pursuit of things that look like light, but are actually the blackest of darkness. At all times, my desire is to dwell in “the Light that leads to life,” and that Light is You! 💡 Thank You, Lord. In Your name I pray, amen.

      1. Living hopeful. Actually I have a ache in my left shoulder. I’m going to make an appointment to get it checked. It might be arthritis, but I’m not claiming it. 🙌🏼 And I’m trying to organize my workload, deadlines for student assessments are approaching fast and I don’t even get one break to complete it at work 😣

      2. 😆 I do have a lunch break. But I don’t take them because I have so much work to do. However, God has been helping me to sort it out. I found some time to rest, listen to a sermon, and then work some more

      3. Thanks! I’m glad I can help others. The lines between self-care and being selfless as a Christian can be difficult to define. I’m learning to distinguish them and leaning on God for guidance.

  1. Have a California look at that verse in the KJV sister, it tells you much better news. (See if you can spot the different message):

    “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

    👍🙂🙏

  2. I join with you in your prayer.
    This part: “pursuit of things that look like light, but are actually the blackest of darkness” links me to Adam and Eve eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (since I’m studying Genesis 😊). God allowed us to make the choice of deception, to convince ourselves that those things that are blackest of darkness, look to us like light. He is the only truth, and only when we follow Him will we have light.

    1. That’s the wonderful thing about God — He never forces our hand! He gives us the freedom of choice, because He wants us to be with He because we choose to do so, not because we feel obligated to do so. Excellent point! ✝️
