Hey FAM! It’s Thursday evening! So excited to be back! I took a few weeks off to launch the logo, celebrate birthdays, and deal with sickness 😒… Nevertheless, here we are ☺. I pray you all had an incredible week and are looking forward to the weekend. Sooo let’s chat “Over it”…
This weeks “Over it” is light over darkness! We chatted last time about being able to endure, even when failure keeps rearing its head! In that endurance, it’s important to keep shining the light on the inside of us.
John 1:5 NLT — The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
I remember the first time I heard my pastor speaking about being an agent of change [Salt + Light], and the first time I saw a demonstration of how darkness can’t overcome light… Those moments were the ones that spoke to me the most about how I am to demonstrate the same thing everyday of my life.
In John 8:12 (NLT) it says Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”
Being light and speaking life goes hand in hand, but sometimes we forget, allowing our circumstances to cloud what we know. The other day I was talking to my uncle and he was asking me how I felt.
I responded by saying, “I feel disconnected.”
He then said, “but what do you know?” Smiling I said, “I know I’m connected.”
Many times, a simple reminder of who we are and what we know to be true can shift our whole perspective of where we are currently.
So my question for you tonight is, are you walking in light? And are you bringing the light that you carry on the inside of you to dark situations, equipped with the knowledge that darkness can NEVER overtake light.
Anyway Fam, I love you all and I pray that you all have a wonderful weekend. I leave you with this…
Matthew 5:14-16 NLT
You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
Thanks again, God bless and One love.
