During the winter months, if there’s one thing I hate more than anything else, it’s getting up in the morning in the darkness, going to work in the darkness, and finishing work and coming home in the dark – It seems to make the daytime seem so short and the working day seems so long. It’s funny how the long day days can make us feel so low and sad while the long daylight hours of the summer always seem to lift our spirits.

It’s just like the true light of the world, Jesus. If we live in a world without His light, our days can seem long and dark with no way out of darkness. While if we live in His light and try to  shine our own light of love for God, we may still face problems and dark times in our live, but the knowledge that we have the love and support of God and other Christians around us, can keep us strong and faithful through the tough times and back into happier days.

Live in the light, the light of God’s love, it is the best way to live your life!

Great Light of the World by Bebo Norman

Sometimes at night
I am afraid
I cover my eyes,
Cover my shame
So here in the dark
Broken apart
Come with your light
And fill up my heart

Oh great light of the world
Fill up my soul
I’m half a man here
So come make me whole
Oh great light of the world
Come to impart
The light of your grace
To fill up my heart

The wind of this world
Can push us around
Folding us up
Backing us down
But here in the dark
I’m not alone
So come with your strength
And carry me home

Oh great light of the world
Fill up my soul
I’m half a man here
So come make me whole
Oh great light of the world
Come to impart
The light of your grace

Oh great light of the world
Fill up my soul
I’m half a man here
So come make me whole
Oh great light of the world
Come to impart
The light of your grace
To fill up my heart

The light of your grace
To fill up my heart
