Wednesday in the Word-Just enough Light...




Have you ever been in a position that when your lights went out that you found yourself searching for candles to light? You have candles on hand but needless to say you cannot remember where they have been placed. You finally find a candle for the living room and you light it. A few minutes later you decide you need to find your watch to keep up with the time and it's in the bedroom in the dark and you cannot see. So, you take your one candle and you slowly let that one little light lead your next step as you slowly walk to the bedroom.  The whole time you are taking baby steps in the dark and you are finding that the light from the candle IS JUST ENOUGH LIGHT FOR THE STEP YOU ARE ON.

In reading Stormie Omartian's book......"Just enough light for the step I'm on"  sure says a lot for us.

She says in one of her chapter's the following; Whenever we go through difficult times, we anticipate the coming moment when all the pressure is off, the worry has subsides, the healing has manifested, the sadness has lifted, and the pain is gone. We continuously look for God to take away the discomfort we are experiencing. But God wants us to know that even as we wait for those changes to happen, His light is there all the time shining into our darkness. He wants us to trust that, and open our eyes to see it.

The Bible says in Revelation 21:23; "The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is the light. 

 Just as we trust the light of that one candle to show us the way step by step we must trust Christ to show us the way, step by step. After all, He is our Light! And He is ENOUGH light for the step we're on regardless of how hard that next step may be.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. Great analogy Cindy. I don't read a whole lot but actually read that book when she first came out with it as I was going through a difficult season in my life. Your post has been a great reminder for me. Connie Royals

  7. Cindy, as I read your post this evening all that went through my mind was "This Little Light of Mine" by Addison Road.

    There's a little flame inside us all, some shine bright and some shine small. The rains will come, the waters rise...but don't you ever lose your light.

    In this life you will know, love and pain, joy and sorrow...so when it hurts when times get hard, don't forget whose child you are....

    This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine, I'm gonna let it shine....

  8. This is a great reminder that, although we may not be able to see God's big picture, we just need to trust him as we take one step at a time. Have a great week, my friend!

  11. OMG! I thought power went out only, (and just sometimes) in third world countries. Anyway, we have a power motor in our building...BUT, yes God is my main light, so I don't care when it goes away and there were no power motor in the past either, but God has been there, shining to me, my family and all of us!
    Thanks for sharing this inspiring post.

  12. I have been through those seasons of step by step light more than once in my life. It seems that the older I get, the more frequent they are. I love the picture you drew from the candle. You are so right, and God is so faithful.

  13. Thank you for sharing Stormie's quote today. It was perfect for a dear friend who is going through a horrific place. I've shared it with her and trust it encourages her today!
