Follow The Light! - Leaning on the Promises of God for Moms

Follow the Light!

When the life of Jesus is in our midst, there is a palpable crackle in the air, a sparkle to the lights and shadows of His dance among us.

Yet most people I know, including me so much of the time, live as though their feet are tied to the ground by heavy loads of duty, works, guilt, worry, comparison, inadequacy, boredom . . . etc., etc., etc. He did not create us to live in such a way. He came to give life, and life more abundant. The joy of the Lord is to be our strength. What have the voices of this world done to our joy?

Who in your life points you passionately, irresistibly into the arms of a loving God, a gentle Shepherd, a compassionate Father, an interesting Artist? He is the God who longs for us to celebrate life, to exist above the mundane present to perceive the invisible life of the Kingdom He is shaping through us for eternity.

Knowing Him should create in us a powerful sense of life, excellence, expectancy from a heart filled with faith, love, and anticipation.

Jesus “was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man” (John 1:9, NASB). In leaving everything behind and pursuing Him—not rules or laws or formula or morality, but the Person who has so much more to offer—we find light and life. His Kingdom is the pearl of great price, worth selling all that we have in order to grasp it and hold it fast.

His Promises

And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.

John 17:3

I love those who love me,

and those who seek me diligently find me.

Proverbs 8:17, ESV

Take delight in the LORD,

and he will give you your heart’s desires.

Psalm 37:4
