The Light Shines in the Darkness…

Advent: A time to reflect on darkness and light.

Hope yet shines through the despair.

Jesus Christ, fully God, yet fully man, comes to Earth, clothed as a baby.

So much mystery and contradiction.

The Messiah, the chosen 1,

Born of a virgin in a lowly stable

Yet the Saviour of the world.

I love to light our Advent candle, remembering the truth that the light shines in the darkness but the darkness has not overcome it.

So for me, it resonates with the truth that whilst I may be battling depression, the Light of the World is my Living Hope. I will not be afraid. The Light has overcome the darkness. VICTORY ETERNAL- no more suffering, no more tears. Jesus wipes them away and holds me and says “It will all be ok. This pain will end.

Joy, the antidote to fear is brightening my world.

Here’s the link to Five Minute Friday whose word prompt today was Darkness.

  1. Sometimes my mind makes real weird swerves,
    and I got myself a-thinking;
    did Jesus ever get on Mary’s nerves
    and buy Himself a spanking?
    I know we’re s’posed to see Him
    as a sweet and holy Child,
    but did He have an impish grin
    that said, “I’m running wild”?
    I’d like to think that maybe
    He blew spitwads at the Pharisees
    and blew up their solemnity
    by mischievous degrees.
    I’d love to have our Saviour be
    something of a kid like me.
