Wow another snow storm and the cold weather. But have you noticed, how warm the sun light feels? Even when it's real cold, it seems not so cold when you are in the sun, this time of year. Maybe it's me but the sun seems to be brighter. Winter is still here for a while but feeling the warmth of the sun, let's us look forward to spring.
Sometime doesn't it just seems cold. You bundle up...and you still feel cold. Ever had days like that, you just can't warm up. We get the wood stove running hotter, turn the furnace...temp. up. That chill just seems to stay in the air. Now sometimes you are the only one that feels that chill; other around you are comfortable....warm.
The chill of life, also sometimes comes upon us also. You know what I mean. You start to wonder about things.... you start to wonder about God. What is He doing; has He forgotten about me? Can't He see that I am hurting...I can't handle the pressure, I'm alone...everything seems to be going wrong...I'm lost, I don't know what to do. These things come up in our lives in all different forms, intensities...Sometimes they are so strong they grab us, the take hold...doing all kinds of things. We wonder and then sometimes wander...
So what do we do? It may seem like I'm giving an easy answer, but I also know how hard it is to do... The answer is to get up and go stand in the light, the Son light. For us as believers that is to get up and turn to Jesus our Lord and Savior. He is the light of the word, much brighter... than the sun light mentioned above. You see, when we are at turmoil deep inside and outside, recognize there is a battle going on ; we need Jesus. Go stand in the light and see what He can do for you. Matt. 11:29 -30 "Come to Me, all who are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble at heart, and you shall find rest for souls. For My yoke is easy, and My load is light." Now this doesn't mean our problems disappear, but that He will help us through...Now I said stand in the Light but also notice you need to put your head in that yoke, the one Jesus has. That means putting our yoke down(taking our yoke off). Get into the Son.
