Light and Dark

A lighted path.jpg

Have you ever walked through the woods on a cloudy night?  Strange sounds that screech like finger nails scraping against a chalk board or the dried leaves and twigs snapping under foot, my eyes are blinded from the pitch black darkness.  Not a twinkling of light shows through the forest canopy.

Panic enters the mind.  I walk with soft tiny steps to feel each little stone or root.  My steps quicken then something springs up and hits my leg,  it is a stick big enough to use as a blind man’s cane.

On the darkened path a pair of red beady eyes stare at me.  All I see are those horrific eyes without face or form.  I fall to my knees, my hands cup my face tears stream down my cheeks.  I am lost with no one to help me.  I cry out. “My God, my God what evil lurks within this darkness.”  “Help me, please help me.” I have no idea how long I laid there in a fetal position.

I open my eyes and rise to my feet.  Up ahead I see a lighted path,  at that moment a peace comes over me.  It’s like how a baby feels a comfort and protection when it is in the arms of its’ parent.   The lighted path is narrow and the way to it is hard.  To journey cautiously in the woods at night, we need a light in order to avoid the pitfalls of the darkness.  In this life we venture through a dark forest of evil, but God’s word can be our light to show us the way.

Are guided by the light on your path or road to keep you from stumbling and falling?

A Jubilant Moment

Uncategorized

Today my morning began early at the break of dawn.  With my camera slung over my shoulder, I walked into a gated grave yard community.

For peace of mind and tranquility, a walk through a cemetery is my start for the day.  I feel rejuvenated with my morning talk with God.

The light and joy of Mother nature comes through with birds chirping songs of reveille.  A red fox stops no more than 20 feet in front of me and stares at me; I stop, my heart beats faster not knowing what this little creature is going to do.   Finally, he makes the first move and darts into the woods.  At that moment I didn’t think of taking a picture.   In this grave yard, there are a few monuments scattered throughout the cemetery.  A statue of Jesus with a few of his disciples gave me great joy as the early morning rays of sun beamed down on this particular setting.  I wonder what lesson Jesus is telling them?  What a jubilant occasion it was to capture this moment.  “Joy cometh in the morning” (Psalm 30:5)

COFFEE

Remember when you said “I’d never forgive that person”. Then you’d sit there with a hot coffee, you’re steaming over the incident. With unsteady hands you grip the cup and lift it to your lips cautiously sipping the bitter taste. The smell of the coffee permeates the room as your mind replays the issue. As you gently set the cup to the table, you begin to take control.

The title of this post is C.O.F.F.E.E. Its acronym is:

Christ Offers Forgiveness for Everyone Everywhere

Un-forgiveness is like a stage four cancer, it will continue to eat and tear at you until you have no life. Un-forgiveness is a sin. The only cure for un-forgiveness is to forgive and ask the Lord to cleanse you of the sin.
He knows you won’t forget; but He knows you can forgive. Then a miracle happens, you begin to have joy, pleasure and peace of mind.

If you are not a believer, this is a quote by T.D. Jakes:
“I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn’t then live my life as if there isn’t and die to find out there is.”
