Inspired by... light


Can you imagine our world without light? Even on the darkest, stormiest day, the sun is shedding it's light upon our world. Nourishing us with life-sustaining nutrients. Our earth can't survive without it.

Of course, there are other sources of light.

The moon can be magnificently bright at times. There is something serenely magical about walking in the moonlight.

And what about fire? The people in Colorado and other places can certainly attest to it's destructive force. But have you ever noticed how the lighting of one small flame immediately chases away the darkness? Light a candle in a darkened room and you'll see what I mean.

Light is powerful.




Is there something in your world that is dark today? Maybe something you've done, or something that's been done to you. Something that's stealing your JOY, causing you to FEAR. A decision you have to make, a burden you're carrying.  Do you feel alone? ashamed? abandoned?

Be encouraged, there is a Light greater than the sun that can deal with ANY darkness you're facing today, or will face tomorrow.


Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  {John 8:12}


In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. {John 1:4-5}


Jesus is real.

He loves you.

And He's bigger than whatever you're facing.

He'll chase away your darkness...


...if you ask Him to.
