There was once a time not long ago when I would run for cover before the sun rose to smile upon us, for I felt His light would put my scars on display for all to witness. As I ran into the house for cover I would close the drapes to block His light that shined on those who wanted to be seen, for the day belonged to them. As I waited impatiently for the shadows to begin their journey to cover me I often wondered what the warmth of day felt like when the darkness was away, what it felt like to be seen in His light. With the Lord now in my life I no longer run from His Light, I bask within, and there is no need to wonder any longer, for I now know what the warmth of day feels like when the darkness is away.
“The light shines in darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
