Step into the Light
“In the beginning, darkness was over the surface of the world and God said, “Let there be light.” God saw that the light was good and He separated the light from the darkness.” Genesis 1:3-5
As I step into the fourth anniversary of Leo’s death, I could choose to walk in darkness, but Leo was lit with the light of God’s love so I chose to follow his flame.
In our own lives we can often feel like we are in the dark searching for the light. Our circumstances that we face can often weigh us down. God wants us to know that He is with us through every situation that we encounter. Although God didn’t cause the situation that we are in, He wants you to be aware that He can help us through it.
I had a light enter my life with the birth of my son Leo. His love for Jesus beamed out of every pore of his broken body. His belief and trust in God’s plan helped me through the wilderness of darkness and gave me the ability to step into the light of God’s love.
Your circumstances don’t have to define your happiness. As a mother that watched two of her sons be planted in a garden of hardship, I was transformed by witnessing the way they plowed through their trials and cultivated a garden of glory. They both looked past the mountain that was in front of them and found peace in the promise of eternal life.
It is during your darkest moments that spending time in God’s Word is so important. His light will cast over you and be a lamp to your feet. It is the light that will keep you from sin. Flip the switch on and step into the space filled with the light of His love.
