Have you ever been in the woods without a flashlight? I’ll never forget my first year at camp with students on a summer retreat. I had just finished giving the lecture about never walking around camp alone, never leaving the cabin without rain gear, and always have your flashlight. This one night after worship I was busy cleaning up and preparing for the next day and found myself last leaving the worship space. And yes, I left my cabin without a flashlight. It was dark! I mean really dark!!! It didn’t matter how hard I tried to focus my eyes or get them to adjust…nothing…just darkness lay before me. One of the worship leaders came back and saw me struggling and offered me an extra flashlight to get back to my cabin. The minute that light broke through the darkness I could see just enough to put one foot in front of the other.
That’s FAITH! The light cuts through the darkness, giving us just enough light so we can see, to keep moving forward, in one DIRECTION giving us the FOCUS to put one foot in front of the other in FAITH one day at a time! FAITH > Fear
Fear paralyzes us, leaving us stranded in the dark. FAITH gives us the strength and courage to fight, pressing forward, one step at a time following the light and trusting the ONE that guides our journey and will light our path as we go.
Pressing the RESET on FAITH!
Love and Blessings as you go,
