Have you ever spent hours wracking your brain trying to resolve a situation or come up with the perfect solution only to be left in a constant state of frustration?
I am one of those people who is very black and white. When it comes to decisions, I don’t do gray well. It’s either right or it’s wrong. It’s all or nothing.
When I don’t feel 100% sure of a certain direction I happen to be going in, I generally put on the brakes. I’m usually found in a state of immobilization. I do nothing. 😦
I don’t want to make matters worse if I’m making the wrong decision, so I do nothing and unfortunately it then causes me to avoid the risk of making the right decision! 😦
Times like those are when I long for a light bulb moment. You know, when the light goes on in your brain and you say Aha! And you come to an enlightened realization, and you finally get it! 🙂
You come to an epiphany!
You suddenly see that situation from a new and usually deepened perspective.
It usually involves some new form of light shining on the situation that helps you see things differently.
I don’t belive that is just coincidental.
I believe it is Jesus.
Jesus is the light.
He shines on the darkness in our lives. He brings light unto our lives. He leads us through darkness. He is our epiphany!
Instead of walking around in the darkness, let’s all let the light of Christ shine from within us, lighting our way and lighting the way for others around us to clearly see.
When you have those moments of uncertainty, pray to the light of the world to enlighten you with the direction to take. Then follow His direction. Not yours.
When frustration sets in, let your Aha! light bulb moments come from God in the form of answered prayer. Then move forward in that direction. Do not be afraid and remain in the dark.
Thank you Lord for all the light bulb moments you give us to help us see our paths more brightly and clearly! Aha! 🙂
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
Love and laughter,
