For many years I have sought after light. I need light to guide and to save me. I need it to chase away the darkness. Light is necessary for love to enter my soul. I’ve read both of the testaments the Holy Bible has to offer. There’s much talk of darkness and light contained in its pages. The struggle for me to behave and become a child of the light has been an epic battle.
When I think of heaven I imagine a country of light where all my sins and all of my sorrows are no more. I imagine no more bipolar disorder and no more mistakes that are deadly to my heart and soul. It can be difficult to travel the Christian’s path. A great hope of mine is that I am heading in the right direction.
What are some aspects of life that defy the darkness? When you are kind to another human being without any selfish agenda then you’re defying darkness. Living with humility is doing the same. When we love we are on the side of light instead of the dark. And when I sin and seek forgiveness perhaps more light may enter in.
Let’s not be victims of our own selfishness. Humanity knows right from wrong instinctively. Eyes for eyes and wrongs for wrongs lead us down dead end roads. Christ taught about a narrow road and gate that I seek to walk and enter in at daily. It isn’t always easy to be a child of the light and follow Jesus.
I’ll always have the heart of a seeker.
