The Morning Light

Freedom is calling your name. Step into the light and never look back.

It’s a new day. Go ahead and take a deep breath. Remind yourself that His mercies are new every morning. 

Last night, in the dark, you may have said or done some things that you regret today. But my friend, the light of the morning sun has risen in the sky. The things done in the dark are forgotten in the light.

The light literally can’t contain the blackness of yesterday’s night. It has to shine. Bright and beaming, the glow of today overshadows yesterday’s dimness. All that’s left is what we remember.

Can you let the streaming rays call out to this hidden truth inside of you? Can you forgive yourself for what only you can still see? Let the early gleam of dawn refresh you with its brilliance, its illuminating possibilities.

The darkness limits us, confines us, traps us. The light sets us free to walk in a spacious place. Bask in the warmth of knowing you never have to be a prisoner to the dark ever again. Freedom is calling your name. Step into the light and never look back.

 Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life” (John 8:12).

Burn, baby, Burn

The time has come to burn again.

That cold night that stole your fire? It’s over.

I know you’re still recovering from the chill of what happened.

But recovery is a great place to warm back up.

A place to remember why you’re here.

Do you remember?

You’re here “to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you.” ( 2 Timothy 1:6)

You’re here to live ablaze!

Do the frost bitten memories still sting?

Sure they do.

But they don’t get to freeze you solid in fear.

The only thing that’s gonna break that brick of ice around your heart is the fire of God’s love.

And He says that there is still SO much left for you to do.

You have to believe it.

Let Him breathe onto the dormant embers that lie within your soul.

He longs to ignite your passions, your dreams, and your hopes once again.

Go ahead and enter the flames.

Just burn, baby.

BURN.
