😎🐫🎤 Christ’s peace be with you.  There is just something about sunshine and warmer weather that brings with it a feeling of hope and possibility.  Even through all the frustrations that come daily with my job, my midday lunch walk always calms and recharges me for the afternoon ahead.  That brief time in the sun can change your perspective and brighten your outlook.  There is a definite difference in me when I’m not able to take my lunch walk.  Think for a moment what it feels like outside when it’s 65 and cloudy, maybe damp or rainy, compared to 65 and sunny.

Now think for a moment how your life feels when Satan blocks out the Son.  Think about how drained, uninspired, melancholy your days feel.  John 1:5 tells us “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”  The light doesn’t try to overcome the darkness.  The light is the source and it’s the darkness that tries to over shadow the light.  Remember that.  At the core of your being there is light.  The Light and life of Christ.   John 8:12 reminds us, “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.”  With Christ at the center of your life, you are the light that will shine and break through the darkness.  The darkness can only try to cover up the Light, but it can never break through the Light.  That reminds me of something my daughter has shared with me on multiple occasions and has really stuck with me.  “The sun always comes out after the storm.”  And why is that…because the Son is constant and the clouds are simply passing through.  Stand strong in the Lord and His beacon of Light.  Bless others and be blessed.
