We live on a 7 acre piece of land, the reason we’re here is due to God’s plan. I’m awakened by my Father who wants me to see that I need to take a few moments just Him and me! Throw on some clothes and out the door my feet flew, a cold chill in the air as a faint wind blew. Trying to keep focused on the path up ahead, not wanting to trip and fall in the night thats so dead. Never have I tripped when I take these walks, like God is watching me as we walk and talk. I then realized that God gave me a light, subtle but enough to get me through the dark night. Looking up at the stars and the bright blue ball, thinking of how big is the world and us so small. How we need to focus on what’s in front for we cannot see too far away, focused on God’s light as not to wander to far away. He will light up our paths so that we can see, close to Him is where we need to be. Without His words we can get a bad fright, but with it we can fend off the night. John 8:12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said,” I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Matthew 5:15-16 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. in the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
