December 2014 Letter–Dear Light

Dear Light,

In the beginning, God spoke and there you were. And today, you still are. 

Every single morning, your life breaks darkness. I am not quite sure when the darkness switches over the the light because you are so gentle, but you keep coming and coming until you overpower the darkness all around, and you empower me to live my day. Because of you, I can see, understand, recognize.  Because of you I can lead others and be led by them. Because of you, darkness flees. 

Dear Light, you shape my life with all that you are.My days follow your rhythms, and when I dance with you, joy floods my soul. You make me feel alive, and every time I reach out to touch you, you touch me back with gentle kindness.



I have great eyes and I see well, but without you, they are useless. It is only through you that they function fully. You enable them to carry my body through the path set before me.  When I hold on to you, I stumble a whole lot less. 

And when you hide yourself, even my words disappear, because you truly are the fuel behind all that I am. 

Dear light, thank you for all that you are to me.




  1. I love the gentle transition from darkness to light as the sun comes up. When a sinner comes to Jesus the transition often is dramatic – but for others it is a gentle change. Thank you for sharing your inspiring post with us here at “Tell Me a Story.”


  2. Thank you for sharing your heart about the word light. I have been pondering. This post reminds me of the old DC Talk song “Be In the light”

    “I want to be in the light, as you are in the light. I want to shine like the stars in the heavens. Oh, Lord be my light and be my salvation. Because all I want is to be in the light.”
