Light in the Darkness


I must admit that I believe that the Light shines in the darkness. I believe that the Light is beautiful and powerful. Just a speck of Light will shatter the deepest dark. The Light always wins.

Think about it. In this crazy world of technology, light keeps us awake. During a recent hotel stay, the microwave clock, the alarm clock, the TV and cable lights, and the smoke detector light all shone in the darkness, disrupting my sleep pattern.  The light wins. The Light wins. It is that simple.

I met today with a priest to talk about the Light and the darkness and he helped me to understand that if we ground ourselves in Love, the darkness cannot overcome us. That if at our core we seek God and Love, then the powers that try to sway us from our Centre lose. It does not mean that there will be no suffering. It simply means that we are capable of enduring and standing our ground, of finding strength that we did not think possible.

I needed to hear that message today and claim it as my own personal Truth. When we fear the darkness, we need to stop and understand that the Light will win. The powers of darkness lie to us and create fear and shame. As the fear rises, breathe and whisper the name of Jesus. Cling to the Light. Even the smallest Blinking can destroy the darkness. Join with the great cloud of witnesses who have learned this lesson and realize that the ground is solid. The power belongs to the Light.

Be calm and trust. The Light shines in the darkness.

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
