Thoughts on the First Day of Light Increasing
Thank you Lord Jesus for the Light that is coming through the trees right now.The ground is so cold and covered with snow, and last night was the longest night of the year.Light will be increasing now.In years past, people feared the longest night and wondered if the sun would come back.Today I wonder not when and if the sun will return, but rather when the Son will return.Increase Your light in my heart, increase you ability to shine clarity in and on the places in my life that most resist the light of day and grace.
Scripture Reflection Matthew 5
1Now when he saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2and he began to teach them saying:
People came to see the power of God at work in you, Lord Jesus. It was the miraculous that drew them to hear the message. It was because there was the authority and power of God displayed that the people wanted to hear the teaching.
3"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Lord, those who come to you empty, you know how to fill. I have to allow you room in my life to move and fill and change me for there to be the miraculous demonstrated.
I realize my need for you today Lord Jesus...for you to work and make alive this heart and spirit of mine.
