Choosing Light 💛

Our world is surrounded by negativity. Wars, fights, discouragement, impatience and a lack of love toward self and others. Sadly, this negativity is also in our minds and hearts. We constantly compare ourselves to others or we focus on what we lack or on the problems that we’re experiencing rather than on our blessings or the good that we have.

Each morning we have an opportunity to choose what to focus on. We can choose to pick up our phones, watch the news, think about all of the terrible things going on in the world and fill our thoughts up with negativity. Or we can choose to turn to God and invite His light to be with us. To think about what we’re thankful for and to rejoice in the blessings that we’re able to have TODAY. Whatever we choose to focus on will have its consequences.

Mathew 6:22-29 says; The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness.

How important is it for us to CHOOSE to fill ourselves up with light? Can we see that what we read, watch, listen to, and speak about ourselves and others really does affect us.

I want to encourage you today to test this out for yourself. Choose to invite light into your mind, heart and soul. No matter what is going on or the difficulties that you may be experiencing today…Just take a moment to close your eyes, breathe deeply and place your hands on your heart. Focus on inviting the light of God to come into your heart. Then, allow that light to flow into your mind to calm your thoughts. & finally allow it to fill your entire soul, until you feel your whole self being filled with God light flowing through you. 💛

You can also take a moment to write down what you feel after doing that exercise. Maybe you can make a list about the things that bring light into your mind, body & soul. This is one of the ways that we can come to better know ourselves and to be prepared next time the darkness tries to get us. We can keep our “First Aid kit Of Light” ready to help us when we need it.

Some of the things that help me invite light into my life are: Taking moments to be silent, turning off distractions to genuinely be able to communicate with God and be preset. I also know that reading the word of God, meditating, listening to good music, reading uplifting messages, spending time in nature and journaling also bring that light into my life. & Finally doing service or spending time in places or with people that uplift me and love me is another way to bring in that light into my life. So, think about the things that bring that light within you. And take a moment to write them down so that you can see them clearly.

Once you have your list and you’re able to recognize those things that invite the light of God into your life. Then, try to keep that list on your phone or somewhere where you can see it often. That way when you feel the darkness creeping in, you can choose one or more of those things to help you get back on the path of light.

Another important things for us to recognize is the power of our thoughts. Unfortunately, It’s part of our human biology that we focus on the negative more than the positive. This is because focusing on the “threats” helped us to survive. The problem is that sometimes our thoughts are out of control and even if we don’t have an actual threat, we still consider everything a threat and we live in a constant state of panic or fight or flight mode.

We need to remember to retrain our thoughts. This takes practice, but we can try to make this our our daily goal. I invite you today to remember that when negative thoughts enter your mind or when you think of someone who has hurt you etc..To please take a moment to recognize the thought, to ask yourself if this thought is really true or what God would tell you about that thought & to speak to your mind and say to yourself “I CHOOSE TO FOCUS ON THE LIGHT”. I invite the light of God to be with me and I surround myself by light and I send light to that person as well.

In the Gospel of John, Jesus declares, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12). These beautiful words from our Savior remind us that through Christ, we can overcome darkness. Through learning of Him and inviting His light into our lives we can be filled with light. Even enough to purify and cleanse our thoughts, our mind and spirit.

I pray that you may feel this desire within you to focus on the light of God and to allow His light to recharge, renew and strengthen all areas of yourself . So that you may be better able to RECOGNIZE the darkness and how the enemy tries to keep you down. (Be awake and recognize the ways in which the enemy works on you) it’s important that as children of God we recognize that and fight against it with the light of our Father in Heaven that we also possess. 💛

To focus on knowing that there is a God who LOVES YOU! & wants the best for you. A God who wants to remind you of your divine light ☀️ so that you may feel His love daily and allow others to feel that as well.

So, remember that all that is good comes from God. Light comes from God. He wants you to feel that light daily. Reach for it and hold on to it. Recognize what helps you to feel it in your life and invite it to be with you your by your.

Remember that light will always overpower darkness. There’s nothing you can’t do without Christ by your side. Focus on that light, take a hold of it, believe in Him & in yourself. 💛
