“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.”
Isaiah 60:1 KJV
As i was preparing to type out this post, the Lord laid out the above Bible verse unto my heart.To be honest, i wasn’t sure what i was going to share, as it has been so long and i have so much to share, but i just knew i had to share something this evening(well morning, its like 1am). So i pondered on this verse for a while, and it was just perfect. Thank you Father for your guidance.
Don’t just arise, but also SHINE!!!
So for a while now, life in general has been really tough. More downs than ups. I went weeks without fellowship with God. There was a huge disconnect between God and i, and i just could not understand why. Because i genuinely yearned to get back in communication with Him, but it just wasn’t working out. I would talk to friends about it, but it was as though everyone around me was also in a downwards spiritual state. School was tough, relationships were falling apart, finances weren’t the greatest, amongst others. But the good thing was that my desire still remained.
A couple days ago, i finally gathered enough strength and had a prayer session with two of my closest friends. And i must say, it was powerful. It was as though there was a rush of wind around us as we prayed. Everything i went on there with that was weighing heavily on me, was lifted off. “28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. Matt 11:28-30NKJV ”
What am i trying to say?
You may be experiencing such a phase in your life, and i believe the Lord just used my situation to bless you. I believe and i know that my light has come. So has yours, so seize the opportunity and make that move, start that business, get that degree, plan that marriage.
This is a word in season. This verse is speaking to someone(you and i) to awake and arise from a state of darkness and mourning, and enter into a state of light and happiness. To rise to new life. To be radiant with the glory of the Lord. Just as after a dark night, the light breaks forth, so are you and i breaking forth into a new day.
Everything the enemy has stolen, God is going to restore:The Joy, The Peace, The Health, The Dreams.
Feel free to send me an email with your thoughts, testimonies, concerns, suggestions or if you just want me to pray with you, i am open to doing that.
