Living In The Light

January 1, 2015

*

Two important things
Knowledge and understanding
Will equal wisdom
Knowledge applied at right times
Will give power and freedom

*

Waking up each day
Knowing a certain future
Anticipating real joy
Is a way to live
That is possible for all
Can be a daily practice

*

Circumstances cannot rob
Take away this joy in me
It’s based on knowledge and wisdom
I”ll live in the light

*

The world can hurt you
Sometimes it certainly will
I have found I have a choice
How I will respond
The power is in knowing this
Love is larger than all things

*

Pride is within me
Along with lust and the greed
Basic things to all of us
There is an answer
To keep these from destroying
My soul, body and my mind

*

The light in my soul
Will heal the wounded places
Received with great joy

*

Happy New Year to those who choose to share this joy. I have chosen the word “light” to be my focus word this year. No resolutions just one word. This word brings clarity and understanding as I look into the heart of God through the light of His Son. May this be the best year of your life. One day at a time, walking after love, as revealed in the daily practice of interacting with the passion and compassionate heart of God, that is light to me. If you have chosen a word for the New Year, would you share that word with me in your reply? Thank you!

  1. Light sounds like a good place to start Terry. I like what you had to say about it. This morning’s Jesus Calling focused on Jeremiah 29.11, and so it seems as one who fights depression like Jeremiah a good place to start prospering would be light. Every time I think about light I think about our mutual friend Landon who is apt to mention salt and leaven, and so it doesn’t take much does it?

    • Thank you, Daniel! You are beloved and favored by God. You have consistently sought the heart of God ever since I have known. Hebrews 11:6 is a promise to you and me. Love and peace to you in this new year.
