Do you ever feel like a hamster on a wheel? Or a doggy paddling in a pool of never ending water? Our days are busy- jam packed with the daily going ons of life- that sometimes it’s hard to keep our chins up, let alone our heads. It’s hard to remember to keep your focus on Jesus through a mountain of stress and a field of emotions.
Yet, because of Jesus, we are expected to be the light in this dark world. Too often though, the stress and emotions of what is happening day to day, can cause our light to start flickering. Truthfully, sometimes people can reach right on inside you and flip the light switch off.
As Christians, we have to remember to keep fighting to turn our light back on. We might be in an all out battle with Satan and have to scratch and claw our way back to the switch, but we still have to find a way to do it. Life, and people, can be so cruel sometimes. You might feel as if your bulb has been taken and smashed into a million shattered pieces.
Scripture should always be our first defense. When you feel the darkness start to overcome, try reading a few Psalms about light. They will get you closer to the switch.
Psalm 27.1 Of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation– whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life– of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalms 18:28 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
Psalm 36:9 For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.
Keep moving on. Keep shining your light as brightly as you can. Don’t ever let others dim your brightness. Don’t ever let others smash your bulb.
Instead, be radiant.
He will always have an endless amount of light for you to use.
