Into His Light

"For thou art my lamp, O LORD:
and the LORD will lighten my darkness."
~ 2 Samuel 22:29 ~

Often, we need to remind ourselves of what is true.
Of what is sure and solid and immovable.
God's Word is truth.  It is a foundation on which to build.
A solid rock on which to stand.  A sure footing in the storm.
The only way forward in a world of darkness.

"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."
~ Psalm 119:105 ~

"For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness,

hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge 
of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."
~ 2 Corinthians 4:6 ~

Isn't it amazing?  The God Who created all things uses that same power to 

illumine hearts in order that His people might come to Him in repentance and faith.
He truly is gracious and loving and good.  Always.  In all things.

May you know the loving hand of God upon you

guiding you into His truth.  Into His light.  Into His hope.
It is impossible to discover a greater peace or joy than this.
Lasting, eternal peace can only be found in the Lord Jesus Christ.

He is the way to peace with God.

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:

no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
~ John 14:6 ~

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden,

and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
~ Matthew 11:28-30 ~

There truly is nothing better. 

Absolutely nothing.

Many Blessings,

His Light...how many heartaches we could save ourselves if we only walked in HIS light rather than struggling on our own in the darkness. Anyone who knows your family, Camille, knows that even in your darkest hours you chose to walk in His light. Hugs to you my sweet friend.

Dear Dianna ~ How precious it is to belong to Him! Where would we be without Him? How gracious He is to His people. Thank you for your kind words and friendship. :)

Many Blessings,

You've been in my thoughts and prayers all day, Camille. Love how God works through blogland to connect the lives of His children!For some reason the question keeps going through my mind, "I wonder if it's getting hard yet?" You'll know if that's me or God:) Hold on tight- eternity is going to be a very long, long time and God's glory is going to be so worthy of waiting for as He does His work through these trials in this short blip of pain.

Dear Terri ~ Yes, truly, the Lord is Good and does all things well. We must cling to His Truth and not allow anything to crowd it out in our hearts! You are right...in light of eternity, this is just such a little bit of time. Thank you for being a faithful friend. Thank you for praying. Hugs to you! Camille
