How is it doing that?


I'm mostly unflappable.

Except yesterday, I walked into a darkened garage and saw this. Honestly, I didn't mean to disrespect ET in any way with yesterday's post. My head snapped to attention when I saw the glowing bottle of windshield washer fluid. Immediately, I looked around and listened for that little voice, "Phone home...."

As I approached the bottle, I expected to see an active flashlight lying behind it. Nope!

What I did see was a small pinpoint of sunlight shining through the far garage door... (No ET in the garage. Phew!!)

It is said that timing is everything, A few minutes earlier or later and the sunlight would not have been doing the mystifying work shown here. What was more amazing than the timing was how such a small amount of light made the bottle glow.

Darkness is the absence of light and for many folks darkness is a chronic visitor that never seems to want to leave. Sadness and depression can demoralize and paralyze a soul. There is hope. Timing can be everything. A small glimmer of light can change the course of life for that person struggling with darkness of the soul.

"Restore us, O LORD God Almighty; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved." (Psalm 80:19, NIV)

Whether it was the nation of Israel, you and I caught in a dungeon of sin, or those who are stumbling through the darkness of depression and sadness, The Lord God Almighty can and will shine His glorious face upon us and come to save us!

Crying out to the one who said, "I am the light of the world." is always our best option for dealing with just about anything.
