Thoughts on life from Pat Oaks
Every house we have lived in has had the most glorious light coming in all of the windows. We have been blessed with light shows at different times during the day. This morning was no exception.
It rained during the night, and the window at the front of the trailer was covered in tiny droplets of water. The way the light was hitting these droplets, it looked like the window was covered in diamonds. There was even color reflected in some of them! SO beautiful!
Tommy and I were talking about light and how much it enhances our lives. It just makes me happy! When there has been an especially dark day or even week, and the sun comes out, you can almost see people smiling all over town! You get your first cup of coffee, walk into the living room and enjoy the light show.
We also talked about how light shows up things that you would not ordinarily see. It shows up dust on the table. If shows up mud on the floor. It shows up wrinkles on my face!!!! It shows up streaks on the mirror, even after you thought you had cleaned it!
Lots of evil takes place in the darkness because people think no one can see. However, there is One who always sees. He sees the dirt and the grime and the streaks that no one else sees, because HE IS light. There is no place dark enough that I can hide from God. Even the dark thoughts I have cannot be hidden from Him.
I John 1:6,7 says, "If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin."
