Light Extinguishes Darkness

Genesis 1: 3-5 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.


Psalm 119:105 NUN. Thy Word is a Lamp unto my feet, and a Light unto my path.


Matthew 5:16 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven.


John 1:55 And the Light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Last Thanksgiving we were expecting a house full of company, so all of our bedrooms were going to be occupied. One of our rooms doesn’t have a bed, but it does have a large “picture” window (from the 1950’s Era), welcoming a substantial amount of sunlight.

Since my oldest was assigned to that area, I knew, although she enjoyed the sun, being a Floridian for several years now, she would not be too impressed early in the morning with blinding brightness shortly after sunrise.

Before everyone came, I found some “blackout” curtains at the local store, so I purchased a few panels, as the window is quite large, and my husband put them up for me.

Tonight as I was thinking about this, I considered how well my daughter rested in that dark room. It made me think about how Christians in their sin, are “comfortable” in the darkness and resist exposure to light, revealing sin for what it is, SIN!

God has no intention of allowing us to rest in the darkness of our trespasses. He has purchased us with His Blood, and is maturing, growing, sanctifying, perfecting us for the Time He calls us Home.

About voicevessel bwc

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
