Light of the World

Isaiah 9:2

2 [a]The people who walk in darkness
Will see a great light;
Those who live in a dark land,
The light will shine on them.

1 John 1:5

5 This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.

John 12:45-46

45 He who sees Me sees the One who sent Me. 46 I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.
We were able to put up a Christmas tree.  I enjoy the soft glow of the Christmas lights!  There's something so wonderful about them.
When I was little, one of my favorite things to do was to curl up under the tree at night, and look up at the lights through the tree branches and decorations. 
It is always amazing to me that in darkness, it really only takes a little light to brighten things. 
Lyme brings many dark nights, and days seem to be in 'grey-scale'.... Bright lights can be torture to our eyes...
But, the Light of Christ reaches in any time, anywhere- He can bring comfort, as well as conviction.  Just the right value of light to suit the needs of the soul.
Jesus is Light.  He is Truth. 
He brought His light to us once long ago..when born into a cave and laid in a lowly manger.  The shepherds saw a great light, with a host of His angels telling them of His birth... Wise men later followed the light of a great star, leading them to His presence... 
Dear One, are you in a dark place this Christmas- in a dark cave of your own? 
Invite the Light of the Universe, Jesus, to come.  He will meet you where you are- and just as with the Shepherds, he will meet with you as you are...
Look into His Word, the Bible, to see His light even more clearly
He is great in His mercy to those who are afflicted.  He will bring Light into your dark circumstances and in it reveal His presence- and His guidance.  
May His light warm your soul this Christmas~
