1 John 1:5-7 New International Version (NIV)
Light and Darkness, Sin and ForgivenessThis is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
THERE IS NO DARKNESS IN GOD ~
Wow think about that for a minute.
I was talking with a friend yesterday and her struggle with thoughts is very real. After she left, I realized that she can't see where God has brought me from in life. I can share that I went through hard stuff, broken and lost. Yet, what does that really mean to another person. Someday she wants to sit in my chair and help others. What she doesn't realize is this, she is helping others now by her example of pressing forward now. Each day is another chance to move further in God.
THINK ABOUT IT ~
In the beginning.............
Genesis 1:3-5 New International Version (NIV)
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good,and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
A new morning, a new day and a new chance to do things better. I love that God saw that light was good. I love that God has not given us the spirit of fear too. What we set our minds too is important and others see the light that shines through us. A happy spirit or smiles that we share go a long way. What about the day that was dark and sadness just filled my soul. Not a lot of people saw that time of my life but God. He knows me and I love that. He forgave me and set my life on a new path of thinking. His word (Bible) is full of life and promises. Open it and begin to read and learn of his ways.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, your family and friends. I know that some days are just hard and full of tears. I also know that God is able to handle your now and putting on a joyful song is helpful. Music is good for our souls and taking a break of wrong thing moves us into new thoughts. Purpose this a good day.
