Early Morning Light

I love those mornings when I wake before the sun and have time to sit in the dark, watching the light gradually increase. The dim light provides a soft glow in the room, making me even more aware of God’s presence. As I bask in the Lord’s presence, the dark room transforms, slowly turning light gray. More objects are observable. Gradually, the light grows until I can see everything in the room clearly.

When our world seems dark and spinning out of control, perhaps it’s time to sit in a darkened room and wait for the dawn. Wait for the dawning of God’s truth, the dawning of His presence in our souls. Sit quietly. Wait to be aware of His presence. Just as the light slowly transforms the room, let His presence enter your soul, lighting all the dark places. Allow the darkness of fear, regret, and anger lighten in His presence. Allow His light to fill your soul with love and grace.

Let His presence slowly permeate your soul, lighting its darkness.

After raising a family and then teaching for over 20 years, I retired from full-time work. Now I spend time with family, tap dance, take long walks in nature, read, and write. I have published two stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul books and over a dozen devotions. My current goal is to publish a book of meditations over the gospels and to share my devotional writing on my blog. I hope you enjoy and are inspired.
