The Bright Morning Star

This world is a dark place.  Without Jesus, it can be considered night.

Jesus is the bright morning star that begins to drive out that darkness.  Of course, Jesus is also called the sun of righteousness, the light of the world, or even more simply, the Light.

The psalmist wrote that “sorrow may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning.”  See that bright morning star breaking into your darkness, and hold fast to it until you can bask in its noonday light!

Continually turn your back on the night and face the glorious day!

  1. Well, if I could see darkness coming, I would block it. Looking back on all the time before, I must confess that I was somehow faithless, and yet accidentally helplessly stumbling into (the Light of) his grace.

  2. Still waiting for the bright but blinding light…

    I heard someone say, “He will be there when you’re in sorrow and don’t like to say what’s on your mind!”

    This applies to me currently. When I am fed up with ‘counting sheep and staring at the ceiling’ because of sorrow and physical pain due to a chronic inflammation of bone and tendon of my left foot [which is really terrible at the moment though I pop pain pills, uh.. pain killers, like candies], I finally decide to pray…
    Honestly, I only try to do it because I often sense no faith in my heart.

    Nonetheless, I am sure that my current condition is a kind of test/trial I must endure like many others before. But sometimes my hope is sinking to the ground and I prefer keeping quiet in order to not complain too often before God.
    However, time and again I find myself, indeed, lamenting before our Lord and it truly feels good to be honest about my negative feelings and disbelief too. Why should I lie to God and do as if everything would be well? If there is anyone who knows my heart better than I do, then it will be God, right?
    I also encourage myself by saying, “No self-sanctification shots, Susanne. Don’t try to behave as if you were someone else. Be who you are!”

    And what’s even more directing that keeps from falling in life (to me, when I’ve somehow lost my way), that is, it is very comforting to know that there is someone who constantly prays for me when I am weak. Such faithfulness even makes me smile amidst tears. 😉 It feels so good, too.
