Light and Presence

light through treeslight through leavesThe Light of the World doesn't look and feel the same every day.  

Some days, His brightness is overwhelming. His light seems to make all obstacles disappear in front of our eyes.


Other days, He flickers behind leaves, the subtlety of His beams creating its own beautiful dance of light.

Other days, the air is thick with His warmth, but His light seems to be hidden behind the clouds.


Yet, no matter what we see or feel, one thing remains the same. He is always there. Present. Not just present, ever-present.

He is present above and before and beside us everyday, sustaining and upholding everything.

No matter what I see or feel, I know that I know that I know the Light of the World is present with me and for me every step of the way.

And that makes all the difference.


Five Minute FridayThis post is linking up with Lisa Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday. A weekly prompt with strict instructions: write for 5 minutes and post. No over-editing. No do-overs. An practice of freedom. A way to let go of perfectionism. An exercise for some not often used writing muscles. Read more posts or link up over there. Today’s prompt was: PRESENT. (Full disclosure: I write the post in 5 minutes, but I take a little extra time to create a graphic to go with it. I think that's still okay according to the rules...)
