Time to Get Your Light Back

I will not make this too long because its the first of the month and I know you have things to do.

Last night there was a crazy storm. It rained and rained and rained some more. So much so that the power went out some houses on my street still had power (if you've visited Nigeria you would be familiar with  this). Some times the power company  does  that to protect equipment and sometimes you just have to switch phase so you can get your lights back on like other houses.

While trying to get over the "light envy" I got thinking about a dear young lady who wrote to us about not being able to give her heart to anyone else after she lost her fiance in an accident a week before their wedding.

One thing that is common to us all is that, like houses we will all go through  or  have been through a storm and we are all affected differently.  Sometimes our power as people shuts down like the circuit breaker to protect us from further trauma. But just because they  go off, doesn't mean they need to stay off. experiences effect  us differently so while some houses have power all through the storm, some wont.


Sometimes we manage with the lights of because we don't want to go through the complications involved in getting the power back up again. We start living a life that is not as bright and fulfilling as it was designed to be. Ive been there, where life's storms where so tough that I wanted to cry in the dark. But I realized I would be much better of if I got my lights back on.

What I want you to know is that God created you with wonderful thoughts in mind. He wants us to have a fulfilled and abundant life. It is my sincere prayer that you switch phase or change phase in order to get your lights back on. Have you said you will not love anyone else because of the pain you've lost? Do you need to move some things around in your life? You might have to let go and fall in love with the experiences and challenges of something new.

Go through your life and look at all the situations that have hurt you and left you in the dark. Turn your lights back on. Live in the fulness of what God has in store for you. 

 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father, which is in heaven.”  Matthew 5:16
