The Light Of The World - Jesus

Titus 2:13
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.
I don't know if anyone ever reads any of my blogs but I enjoy writing them and so I thought I'd write about something that happened when I went up to visit my mam back in October last year - this is what I wrote in my notes:-
Sunday 26th October 2008
On the last leg of my journey going to visit mam, I was listening to 'Immanuel' by Michael Card. As he sang "All those who stumble in the darkness, behold your light has come" I saw the most beautiful sky, there was a light that just seemed to radiate into the night sky and was a luminous yellowy white. It was all I could do to stop myself looking at the light which was to the left of me and I had to force myself to keep looking at the road ahead but it gave me food for thought. This brilliant light reminded me of Jesus, 'the light of the world and how we look for his glorious appearing.
When I set off on my trip up home I had been praying that the Lord would show me something that would be an encouragement, and that was just what he did. Seeing that light lifted me and just helped me to see that Jesus is the light of the world and we were drawn to the light when we decided to follow him. To be like our Saviour we too must be a light in the darkness and show others the light of his love. There seems to be such doom and gloom around at the moment, the credit crunch has got people worried and seems to make some feel despondent. I listened to a sermon by David Wilkerson just after I'd got back home and he said something similar - that in the world it might be all doom and gloom but there is always a smile in the house of God.

Our God is with us, so who could stand against us. We have nothing to fear in these times and our God will supply all our needs. Just as the light I saw in the sky drew me, and I kept wanting to look at it, may people look at us and see a glimpse of Jesus.

In 2009 - May God

My friend Von sent me a text on new years day that I would like to share with you for 2009 -
May God remember you like Noah
Favour you like Moses
Honour you like Mary
Fight for you like the Israelites
Prosper you like Isaac
Promote you like Joseph
Intervene for you like Esther
Protect you like Daniel
Use you like Paul
Heal you like Naaman
Answer you like Elijah
Anoint you like David
Keep you safe like Shadrach.

I've put this hymn on my daily page but thought I'd share it on this one too
