Horses instinctively puff out their bellies when getting saddled.

 

“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden light.”  Matthew 11:29-30. NKJV

We were drawn to the rooms with the most windows.

Into The Light

A little glitter goes a long way.

“You are the light of the world.  A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.  Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.”  Matthew 5:14-15 NKJV

Hidden

A dear overseas friend sensed I was depressed / discouraged. She hoped she wasn’t right, but she was.

“But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.”  Ephesians 5:13 NKJV

In The Beginning

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
 He was in the beginning with God.
All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.”  John 1:1-5   NKJV

Always-always He was and always-always He will be.

Thank You, Lord, for being our life and light and loving us from the very start.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

All things were made
through Him

and without Him
nothing was made

for He’s the life
and light of man

that shines in the darkness
and does not fade.

God bless you as He lights up your life today!

Shining Before Men

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”  Matthew 5:16 NKJV

I could get a little too caught up in shining before men so they see my good works.

Thank You, Lord, for the good works you give in which You are glorified, not me.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Any light in me
is from You

so oh indeed
let it truly shine

in such a way that
You’re seen, not me

and Your Name
is glorified.

God bless you as your good works glorify Him today!

When I Fall

“When I fall, I will arise,
When I sit in darkness,
The Lord will be a light to me.”   Micah 7:8 NKJV

When I fall and/or sit in darkness, the temptation is to think it is a permanent place.

Thank You, Jesus, for rising out of that dark tomb and reminding me that things aren’t always as they seem, because You are here.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Though I sit
in the darkness
it is Your light
I will yet see

and when I walk
through the valley
it’s under Your shadow
that I’ll be.

God bless you as you arise with Him today!

“The Night Shall Be Light”

“If I say, ‘Surely the darkness shall
fall on me,
Even the night shall be light about
me;
Indeed, the darkness shall not hide
from You,
But the night shines as the day,
The darkness and the light are both
alike to You.
‘ ”  Psalm 139:11-12

From Jesus’ darkest hours came our brightest hope.

Lord, help me to see You in the dark.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Divine Light

I wonder if the tomb
shown bright

once it was
sealed tight

and if my
darkest times

are really
the most divine.

For Peace

“I am for peace;
But when I speak, they are for war.”  Psalm 120:7

The Word wars for our souls.

Lord, thank You for giving us peace amidst the battles. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Peace of Christ

Oh Lord
when we’re amongst
those who only
want to fight

may the peace
of who You are
come first and fully
into light.
