"Look For the Light"    1-13-2019


This morning during our worship service at church the words of a song were displayed on a screen with dark, jagged mountain peaks. In the lower right corner a small light flashed at times on the dark landscape. As I looked at it, I perceived the Lord saying, "Look for the Light, look to the Light. That is where I am. Look for the Light in people's eyes."


People's eyes are interesting. Other than their color, some eyes shine, some twinkle, some smile, and some remain dull and uninterested in life around them. When I meet someone new I always look at their eyes, to see if "anyone is home", if there is any life there.


We have entered 2019, a new year, with all the possibilities it holds. January is a month to contemplate what we need to do and where we need to go in our spiritual life, as well as our physical one.


A few weeks ago I read an article on the internet by Stasi Eldridge. She wrote, "Loosening my grip on traditions has helped me pick up a giant cup of grace and enjoy each season for what it is, not what it's supposed to be." Although we are currently in the dark season of our calendar year, we can anticipate the lighter months to come, and plan how we will live them. Make each day count as we look for the Light. (See John 9:5b).
