Step into the Light


But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. (1 John 1.7) That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 1.12)

We walk in darkness until God Himself shines His light and quickens our spirits. Then we are able to see the Light.

If we move out of the darkness and toward the light, but do not step into the light, then we are still in darkness.

It’s the sin that entangles us.

In our area, we’ve had cloud cover and darkness for days. I’m developing a stinky attitude. This morning, within myself, I groused and grumbled. When I opened my laptop to start this blog, I was met first with the song I need to practice for church. The song is “Your Great Name,” sung by Natalie Grant. For the service, we’re planning for another young lady with a beautiful voice to sing the song, and I will sign it. Well, I thought, I should probably go over it at least once before I start my other stuff and get sidetracked. I ended up sobbing before my Lord. (The nice thing about signing instead of singing, is that you can still sign, even if you’re crying.)

Signing, for me, is an avenue of worship. When I sign, I can worship my God and Savior with my whole body. He fills me through music and movement.

After, I looked out the window and it was still dark and gloomy. But God had come into my soul and filled me with His light.

Sometimes we tiptoe close to the light, skirt it, look at it and love it; but we love our darkness, too. We don’t know what it is to walk in the Light until we actually step into the Light and walk there.

God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. (1 John 1.5)

Are you walking in the shadows, skirting the light but not walking in it?

If we move out of the darkness and toward the light, but do not step into the light, then we are still in darkness.

Go for it. Step into the Light.

  1. As I read this, I remembered a poem I wrote in 2011 titled ‘Come into the light’. God is always calling us into His light. His light brings life. Thanks for the reminder, Kathy.

    And you sign…oh dear, that’s so amazing. It’s one of the things I want to learn but haven’t gotten to.

  2. I love your transparency. I get how the weather can impact our emotions. And yes, we must come into the light and embrace the light if we want to be in the light. And we have to walk in the light. But many will not come into the light because they love the darkness and so they fear coming into the light lest their evil deeds be exposed.
