Standing amazed, stunned even, the light helped me to see mysteries and truths that time, hurt, and weariness had hidden from my heart. From my understanding. The light and the wind pushed aside the internal cobwebs birthing clarity to hidden visions and dreams.
That was the experience I had at the century old Chuny Abbey, France, as I walked on the stones and
I felt the light and it changed me.
God brings light to our lives many ways. Sometimes through people. Sometimes through situations. Sometimes through heartache. Sometimes through nature. But just knowing the light is on sometimes is enough to make us want it.
Our need for light is never attached to our want for light. We will always need light. But want? Want and desire...those are an entirely different thing. Though darkness can bring fear to a child there is comfort in knowing that God forgives ignorance. We're not held accountable for the realities that left the cobwebs of our mind.
Still, we should ask for the light of the Holy Spirit to pour over us...to bring new life to us...to bring light to every dark place in our mind, body, and soul. In doing so there is no doubt that the light of the Holy Spirit will find us and renew us. He will warm the cold places. He will bring clarity to our vision. He will give us passion to reach for our God-given dreams.
And just think, it's all from stepping out of the dark and into the light.
