Is it dark in here?

As a child I loved to play" close your eyes and walk.” This is when my sister, brother and I would close our eyes and walk through the house to see how far we could walk without bumping into something. When I said, Ouch my turn was over. I would always win the game. I have tried this again as an adult, I'm still good at walking in the dark but I always bump into something.

Life has situations that can be up one day and down another. How we perceive a situation will determine how we will respond and react. If we choose to worry about the situation then our body will respond. We can become anxious and nervous- sweating and increase breathing frequency then diarrhea, abdominal pain, and constipation can occur. Wow, yes our mind, body and soul are intertwined.

To release the darkness in our lives, we have to roll all of our cares onto God through Jesus Christ. Meditating in the Word of God and praying to Him in the Name of Jesus bring peace, revelation, and clarity to every situation in life. Prayer is when we communicate with God, acknowledge Him, and worship Him. Praying is talking with God and doing more listening than talking. Also, prayer is giving thanks for what He has done through salvation, and thanking Him for His Son, Jesus. God hears all prayers. God answers all prayers. Life has so many circumstances that will come your way. Stand firm on the Word of God." Be still and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the Heathen; I will be exalted in the earth. “(Psalms 46:10). He will never leave us, nor forsake us. (Hebrews 13:6).

When we make decisions throughout the day we are not walking in the dark and bumping into things because God directs us through His Holy Spirit. He is always with us. He is a very present help when we are in trouble. If we desire peace, joy, or wisdom God has whatever we need. Ask and we will receive. Our Father in Heaven is our light and salvation through any trial, tribulation and challenge in our lives.

Matthew 5:13-16 (Bible Verses about Light)
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men."You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

Enjoy life. Smile and you will brighten up some else life. So be it.
