Breaking Through the Clouds

Breaking through the Clouds

For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6

I recently went on a trip and on my way home I had a short layover in Atlanta. As the plane taxied down the runway for the last leg of the journey back to St. Louis I noticed it was a drizzley dark day.

As the plane began lifting off the ground rain drops slide across the window. The clouds were so thick that you couldn’t see anything outside at all.

Within only a matter of a just a few minutes the clouds surrounding the plane started becoming a little brighter and soon the plane was breaking through and was soon on top of the clouds as sunshine streamed through the windows.

What had been dark just moments ago was now magnificently bright!

This reminds me of how it is when Jesus saves a life.

Without Jesus life can be a pretty dark place, but once you let Him in immediately that darkness begins to change. His light starts filtering through the darkness making things become brighter and brighter until suddenly you see yourself beginning to break through the clouds that surround you. Eventually finding yourself reaching the place on top where his great light shines magnificently bright and the darkness is now left far far behind!

What a great place to be!

If you don’t know Jesus and would like more information you can contact me via email at tluvs2trvl@gmail.com.  No pressure at all just the information you request.

Thanks for reading and have a blessed day!

Rescued and Transferred

pink skyThis evening I happened to glance out my back window just in time to see the sky lit up a beautiful shade of pink. Just a few minutes before the sun had set and the sky had been almost completely dark, but now as I looked out the window the whole sky was lit up and it was so beautiful!  For just a moment I felt rescued from the impending darkness of nightfall as the bright pink light lit up the sky bringing a moment of joy to my heart.

This spectacular gift only lasted for about 3 minutes and then it was gone just as suddenly as it had appeared.

A long time ago God sent another gift, the gift of his son Jesus.

Jesus is light that can rescue us from the darkness and bring joy to our heart.

I am so glad  the light of Jesus lasts more than a moment.

For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his dear son. – Colossians 1:13 NLT

Do you know Jesus? Jesus2

 

You are My Lamp

2samuel22 29

You, Lord, are my lamp; The Lord turns my darkness into light. 2 Samuel 22:29

I was standing outside my church when I took this picture. I did not realize until later that the cross on top of the church steeple was in the picture. 🙂

“Son” light shining bright

20131218_064715

I feel a sadness in the darkness as I awaken this morning.

Tears drops slip down my face as thoughts of yesterday plague my mind.

As I turn over planning to bury my face in my pillow to go back to sleep I glimpse the moon through my window, full and shining bright.

Before my eyes the moon begins descending down the sky taking along with it the darkness.

On the other side of my room from different window, the sun, hidden below the dark horizon begins making its ascent up the sky.

Orange fingers of sunlight begin clutching the edge of the darkness as if grasping on to pull itself up, tinting the sky to a perfect shade of pink and blue.

I feel peacefulness overcome me as I perch on the edge of this place where yesterday ends and today begins.

The sun light slowly washes away the darkness on one side of the sky while the moon slips down below the horizon on the other side, taking yesterday away as this new day begins.

No matter how dark things may seem Jesus is always here, He is the light.  Jesus is the “Son” light that always shines bright.
