Light Finds Us

IMG_1402

darkness closes in

even so, the light finds us

and never burns out

What a comfort to know that no matter where we are, or how dark our sky gets- His Spirit is always there. As the girls and I drove through a terrible storm last night, all I could do was pray and sing with all my might.  I thought of pulling over, but felt Him nudging me to keep on going.  I sang as I drove…

“I love You, Lord… and I lift my voice… to worship You, O my soul, rejoice!  Take joy my King in what You hear.  May it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your ear.”

It’s when we can’t see the light that our faith is made the strongest.  He is the maker of Heaven and Earth, the Creator of darkness and light…and He knows the depths of our hearts- and our every need. There are times when we may feel vulnerable and afraid, but in our heart we can find peace and rest when we worship Him.

Where can I go from your Spirit?

Where can I flee from your presence?

If I go up to the heavens, you are there;

if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,

if I settle on the far side of the sea,

even there your hand will guide me,

your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me

and the light become night around me,”

even the darkness will not be dark to you;

the night will shine like the day,

for darkness is as light to you.

Psalm 139

  1. “but felt Him nudging me to keep on going” – now that is beautiful.

    So often I would be so wrapped up in what was outside and in front – He could have given me full blown slap on the cheeks – and I wouldn’t notice! Learning (again and again!) 🙂

    1. Lol! I am learning…slowly but surely! As we drove home last night, my youngest was crying and saying she didn’t want to die. There were branches swirling everywhere, lightning, hail…all I could do was keep calm, keep my eyes on the road, and sing- LOUD! Walking with Him is an awesome journey, isn’t it 🙂
