We can have all kinds of great things happening around us, yet we are so focused on ours own issues that we have trouble seeing anything else. Yep. It really is true. There is great stuff happening all around us. It’s up to us to look up and see the blessings that surround us.
James 1:16-17 MSG
“So, my very dear friends, don’t get thrown off course. Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle.”
Have you ever seen a picture of a lit match held close to a wall; the match stick will cast a shadow, yet the light itself does not. God’s Light cast away shadows and darkness. God’s Light is filled with joy and peace and comfort. Even when we feel like shadows surround us, we can know that God’s Light is casting out the darkness. Look up and see the blessings of God’s love that surrounds us. Shadows disappear when we look up and see the blessings of God’s Love Light surrounding us.
