Today Reminder – 13 April 2015 (Day 2 – Darkness)

A reminder for today
Then everyone who has eyes will be able to see the truth, and everyone who has ears will be able to hear it. (Isaiah 32:3)

I love Matthew 6 verse 22: "Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!” 

When we turn from God and darkness consumes us it is frightening when you realise how deep that darkness is. With consuming darkness follows unforgiving and depression and they are two of the largest contributors to the fall of many Christians. When your eyes are focussed on the Light that Jesus provides and you seek this light with all your heart. It will fill your whole body and drive out the darkness that is eating away in you.

Come my friend and let us look up to the Light. Let us open our hearts to the Lord so that He can fill us with His presence. Let us see the truth for the truth is the salvation that we received freely on the cross. Let us hear the truth for the truth is spoken by the Holy Spirit that dwells within us. Let us open our hearts for our hearts is filled with the love that is God. This love my friend is tangible so you can feel it. This love is the love of an Almighty God and I pray that you whole body is filled with warmth as you read these words for I confess that He is a real as the love we share. 

There is no darkness, there is only light. Hear it, see it and feel it.

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus

Today Reminder – 12 April 2015 (Day 1 – Darkness)

A reminder for today
Look, a righteous king is coming!  And honest princes will rule under him. (Isaiah 32:1)

How are you my friend? It has been a long time since I have written to you and I must admit I missed it. My journey is still a long way from its end and now it has taken a darker turn. I find myself standing before a huge crater in my path filled with bigger challenges than ever before. For a while I felt my path turning away from God as the enemy finally succeeded in its plan. Much has changed, but I will tell you more about that as we start our journey at the face of the crater that lies ahead. 

I have found myself surrounded by darkness as pain and anger took the place of the Light of Jesus in my life. I looked at the changes that await me and I stopped to listen to the voice of reason, the voice of God, and I relied on my own strength. I failed.

They say that light separates darkness and I must say that is so true. I can feel how the Lord is reaching out to me in last few days calling me back to Him, calling me back to my journey. Yes I have to walk this path with bigger burdens but what are we if we do not face our challenges with Him in our hearts. Why do we try to battle alone when we are weak and full of fear? 

Come with me my friend and let us look ahead towards the light. Let us forget the pain we gave and the pain we received as we reach out to the only one who heals and gives life. Look a righteous King is coming and with that our time is running out. Let us stop fighting against the things that pulls us back to a worldly person and let us embrace the things that will take us to the light. 

I wish to leave you with this poem from Carol Wimmer:
When I say, “I am a Christian”               
I’m not shouting, “I’ve been saved!”
I’m whispering, “I get lost sometimes
That’s why I chose this way”

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I don’t speak with human pride
I’m confessing that I stumble –
needing God to be my guide

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I’m not trying to be strong
I’m professing that I’m weak
and pray for strength to carry on    
When I say, “I am a Christian”
I’m not bragging of success
I’m admitting that I’ve failed
and cannot ever pay the debt

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I don’t think I know it all
I submit to my confusion
asking humbly to be taught

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I’m not claiming to be perfect
My flaws are far too visible
but God believes I’m worth it  
When I say, “I am a Christian”
I still feel the sting of pain
I have my share of heartache
which is why I seek God’s name

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I do not wish to judge
I have no authority
I only know I’m loved

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
