Yesterday turned out to be a good day in so many ways. Every chore I wanted to get done in the yard, garden and house got addressed. I even got the swimming pool winterized. The last thing on my list was getting my hair cut and that’s being done this afternoon. These times in my life are fun for me. I feel worthwhile when a day ends like this. Last night however, things changed. The darkness of day can often lead to darkness of soul. A phone call from someone I dearly care about makes a pleasant day turn to genuine turbulence.
As I began my bible reading this morning I read Proverbs 4:18. It says: “The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining brighter and brighter until midday.” Joyce Meyer writes her own comment to this scripture saying it is so nice to know that our path of life with Christ will grow brighter and brighter as we learn to follow Him rather than thinking we need to have Christ follow us. Turning to Christ is the right start, but staying with Christ throughout the day and following His nudges is critical if we want the Light of life to brighten as the day continues. This is a hard lesson to learn for we want to have our way so often in life. Christ is truly patient waiting for us to come to Him. I want to be better at this each day.
