Light is the absence of darkness. One small flame, one slight flicker hollows out darkness, it weakens its strength. Light overcomes the power of darkness.
The lights of Christmas are so soothing. Whether young or old, they mesmerize the observer. Set within the backdrop of darkness, these sparkling wonders stop and make us behold their illumination. Children gaze at the twinkling lights on the tree. They coo, giggle, clap their little hands with awe at the shimmering radiance. As I walk the neighbor at night, I can see the glow of Christmas beaming from each doorway and balcony. This sight is so welcoming; I can’t help but smile, a smile that only Christmas brings.
Centuries later, the story of the Magi led by a mysterious light still holds true. “When they saw the star, they were thrilled with ecstatic joy.” (Matthew 2: 10) Mankind longs to find the source of such a glorious light - A light that guides. A light that dawns eternal. A light that shines in the midst of darkness. A light that radiates hope, dispelling despair. A light that glistens, bringing unfathomable joy. A light that beckons anticipation- a lighthouse of expectation. A light that a never loses its illumination. An unquenchable light that can never be snuffed out.
The birth of Jesus Christ heralded – “the Light has come.” This Christmas, don’t be afraid to step into the glorious presence of the Light. Bask in its brilliance, until it fills you with peace, joy and resilient hope.
“A Light from on high will dawn upon us and visit us. To shine upon and give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to direct and guide our feet in a straight line into the way of peace.” Luke 1: 78b-79 AMP #randomthoughts #exposed
