Light Breaking Through

Life has often seemed like a never ending journey with more hills to climb than I would like. It was as if every decision I made led to an even worse one, and every worse decision created an even bigger hill. I grew up in a Christian home and was always well aware that there was a God I could trust and look to. This truth however, was no match for my controlling and often times stubborn self. I wanted to control my life and thought that what I wanted for my life was ideal. It was through several attempts to do so that I learned my desires are far less than those of God. His love for me is unfathomable, His desire to be close to me the same. I had this idea of what life should be like and thought that whenever I was sinking I could doggie paddle my way back to the surface, all the while God was standing there reaching His hand out. I wish I could say that with this realization I no longer struggle in this area, but I can’t. I often find myself trying to take the wheel back… then I remember all those times I drove and crashed because I couldn’t see the whole road. My desire is to fully submit my heart and life, and to let God shine his light through me. I am a stubborn child asking “where are we going?” “why?” “when?”, and God is the parent who says “just trust me.”


“Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily; your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.” Isaiah 58:8
