These past several days have been full of light. I love it…and I don’t. The little vision I have that already is constantly blurry, is greatly affected by the amount of light surrounding me. The more light there is, the less I can manage. I do wear appropriate dark glasses to help cut the glare. Sometimes even when I am preaching on a Sunday morning when the light in the sanctuary is overwhelming.
This is not so good for a person who loves to be outdoors and whose indoor spaces are designed to allow abundant light to fill those spaces. In spite of my personal love-hate relationship with light, I will continue to speak of God’s abundant light, and encourage others to ‘stay in the light’ when they are journeying through a difficult time…and hopefully, through my ministry, I will be able to serve as a light for others.
