For The Real You

Sweet Light

“Light is sweet and it pleases the eyes to see the sun.”
Ecclesiastes 11:7.

Oh how we love the light after the bleak and after the dreary! When skies are clouded with grey, oh yes, how we love the light then! Oh how we cherish the rays of sun when they win and fight their way through the cloud and how we remember them with favour in the storms and in the darkness of our lives. Yeah, in those desperately, dark days sometimes we just want to throw in the towel and cease to run and forget to stand don’t we? Yeah, those just ‘give up” kind of days where we, for some reason, just can’t even stand not on the promises of God! It difficult to stand for the Truth, to stand for what’s right, to stand for the Light, or to stand for anything at all. No light, no sun, no hope, no motivation and who cares anyway? Just give it all up and dissipate into oblivion. It’s so much safer that way!

Beautiful soul, are you ‘standing’ still or has uninvited trouble sideswiped you off stance, off course ~ run you off track ~ mislead you out of whack? Has your world spiralled downward with all manner of distractions, and taken you along for the plummet? Yes, even when the sun shines we don’t see it’s light always, because too much dark covers our insight and blinds our pathway. “They have eyes, but they see not, ears, but they hear not”
Jeremiah 5: 21.

We cringe, we fear, we recoil and withdraw because even in the sunlight it’s so bleak and dreary some days. Well you and I and we and us ~ When we can’t find the sun, it’s crucial that we look to the Son and the Savior to find His love gracing us even in the dark. Find His care watching over us, even in the night. Find His awesome grace sustaining us over the hard places and the difficult challenges. Find the Truth in His Word to light our way and His protection to guard our minds, our hearts and our souls. Yeah, in the dark, when the sun isn’t shining for the time, we must seek Him, find Him and follow Him! We dare not wait for life to be perfect and light, before we determine to see the sweet, sweet light of Jesus’ face in the increment weather of life itself.

The writer of Ecclesiastes wisely states in 11: 4, “Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.” We truly have a need to look beyond the cloud and see the Son even in our darkest hour because when we see the Son, the sun will shine again and once again hope will rise up within our souls.

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
Psalm 119: 105
