Quirky title. thought so. But anyways, don’t let it throw you.
What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.
– John 1
In Him was life…and that life was the light of humanity, that light shines on….
I’m not going to go into a super deep reflection or anything, I just, i think that as I go through my day, I’m trying to remind myself of the significance of all of this, and what God means for reality as a unified whole.
In Christ is life, that life is our light, I can’t give a commentary that decrypts the message, other than, He has brought life into being. My own life, redeemed, as I’ve been talking to my friends from years ago this week, I realize that in Him I have found life. That life has brought me out of suffering in the past, has brought me suffering in the present, has changed me, has given me light.
There is darkness. . .screw the darkness. The light for humanity that is found in the life manifested in Christ shines on. There is no reason to allow depression to choke out hope, no reason to let doubt steal my sanity, to let fear steal my humanity.
I’m thinking that while it’s easy to doubt, it’s not mine. It doesn’t belong to me.
It leaves you feeling pretty hollow
It might be nice to look at
Don’t forget you’re stuck with it tomorrow

It’s ok to struggle, St. Peter says that we all shall, and we do. Life is composed of interludes of suffering and rest. But to give up, as they say it leaves you feeling pretty hollow. And there’s everything that comes with that tomorrow.
There is love in this beating heart, there is hope in these tired hands, and they are weary, but determined, to look to Christ for strength.
Thanks For Tuning In,
