Vision Week Devotional
1In the beginning the Word already existed.
The Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He existed in the beginning with God.
God created everything through him,
and nothing was created except through him.
The Word gave life to everything that was created,[a]
and his life brought light to everyone.
The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness can never extinguish it
Light within us reflecting Jesus.
Ever watch the beginning stages of blooming plants? Their leaves reach toward the sun. They crave it, they bend toward it.
We all long for light deep within our souls, we bend toward the light and this powers everything we do. We all come from a place of longing. What if we can start to live in that light the way Jesus intended? What if we started to accept that we don’t have to strive for light...we don’t have to bend toward light...but that love is chasing us and Light longing for US?!
It has always been Jesus’ light shining in us, in our darkness as Light to the love that has always been for us. Because Jesus has always been with mankind, since the beginning of time…we can trust that He will never “leave or forsake us.” Take a moment today to ponder on the amazing PLAN of our Heavenly Father. As John 1 states, from the “beginning.” Keeping your “awe” and “wonder” about our awesome God keeps your relationship fresh and exciting. He has LOVED YOU always.
