Darkness Dissolving

Night’s darkness is dissolving away as a new day of destiny dawns. So we must once and for all strip away what is done in the shadows of darkness, removing it like filthy clothes. And once and for all we clothe ourselves with the radiance of light as our weapon.

(Romans 13:12 TPT)

At least three times the light broke through dark clouds as we drove home through the Elk Valley. The first two times there was no place to stop to take a photo. Sometimes my need to capture an image feels like panicky greed. I worry that a moment like this may not happen again. Sometimes I need to learn to simply appreciate in a beautiful site and trust God’s generosity.

I thanked him for light in the shadows. I thanked him for truth revealed and love restored. The rays of sun felt like hope shining down from above. I thanked God for hope.

The third time I saw the light I also saw a parking spot. This memory he let me bring home in my camera. I share with you #3.

  1. Oh how I relate!! What a soul sister you are!! I’m so bless to have biological sisters with whom I can relate in many things; but I’ve never met anyone before who described that feeling of “panicky greed” to capture an image! Lately, by several circumstances, ones I used to struggle with resentment over, my precious Lord has been helping me to see now how He’s wanted to guide my artistic gifts/path in the past and I didn’t let Him in my panicky sense of what I thought I HAD to do and when. More and more as He nourishes me spiritually through HIS WORD. I learn not to be afraid I’ll miss or lose something beautiful which I cherish and to trust His provision. I know now even though I said I did I trust, I really wasn’t Too often I was striving; listening to a lying voice tell me I couldn’t allow time to read His Word . . . but I fit in time for re-creating.
    Thank you for this post. The image you’ve captured is a wonderful reminder of the marvelous mystery of Godliness.
