Faith Together at Home
Light of the World
The lyrics of a song by Lauren Daigle begin:
"The world waits for a miracle.
The heart longs for a little bit of hope."
Isn't that where we are right now? We are waiting for a miracle. We are waiting for things to get back to normal. We are waiting for peace to come to our towns and country. We are waiting for a vaccine to help end this pandemic. With the disruption of school, canceling of family gatherings for Thanksgiving, and not being able to meet together in person as a church, our hearts long for a little bit of hope - just a little bit - please Lord! Just a little bit of hope.
Where does our light come from? Have you noticed that the more earthly lights we have, the less we see our heavenly lights? When we are in a crowded city, the bright, manmade lights blot out the lights of the stars to the point they can't be seen. But, go way out to the country, away from the manmade lights, where it is very dark and look up. The sky is amazing! Filled with stars, we see the heavens and stand in amazement at the awesomeness of God. It is in the darkest nights that we are best able to see the stars.
Where is your trust? Who are you looking to for a miracle? Where is your hope? Are the manmade lights blotting out those of heaven?
Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Only in the darkness can you see the stars." Don't despair. The stars are out there, even when we can't see them. When things are darkest, the stars come out.
