When I saw the sky yesterday evening (pictured above) it stopped me in my tracks. The dark clouds were overtaking the sky, it looked like it was going to start to downpour any minute. But right there in the middle of the big dark clouds poked the sun. It looked as if the sunlight was pushing apart the storm clouds with everything it had. The clouds parted down the middle and the bright light shone through; and it was beautiful!
This instantly reminded me of my life. So many times the dark clouds of life are pressing in on me. I feel overwhelmed, anxious and like the bad/hard stuff of life is just too much to bear. But I push on! In the midst of my challenges and trials I work hard to stay positive, look for the good and not be overtaken. I feel like that light pushing through the clouds. I can’t do it on my own though, but with God (The Light of the World) I can. Every single day He helps me push past the challenges and the pain so that I can see and be His beautiful glorious light. And so can you. You don’t have to be overtaken by the storms of life, you can overcome and shine through! And oh how beautiful it is when you do.
John 1:5 The light shines in the darkness and the light will not be overcome.
Share about a time you have shined brightly through the storms of life. I’d love to hear from you!
Until next time, let’s live bright!
