I actually have several days of vacation left so I am taking them this week before all the surgeries begin.
Before my day started I sat down to begin reading the scripture that Pastor Tim will base his next series on. I wanted to refresh my memory with the passages so that I can prepare to focus on what's next after Christmas.
As I walked to my living room to read, I noticed how foggy it was outside. My Christmas tree cast tiny sparkling lights on the window against a foggy backdrop.
One of the verses read, "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."
It just confounds me how often God gives me a physical example to support His Words when I focus and pay attention!
Despite the fog, the darkness - His son came - The light overcame the darkness….
I cannot wait for Pastor Tim to systematically teach us these truths after Christmas.
My day off started perfectly and I'm convinced I accomplished a ton because I gave Him my first moments - my best most focused moments! Why I don't ALWAYS give Him first place in my life I have no idea !
He waits for me to reach out of this darkness - to reach toward the Light so that I follow Him through my days, not my own earthly agenda...
