This post came up in my Facebook (Your Memories) feed from one year ago today (12/4/15). Thinking back, I was still a month away from the scariest thing I’ve ever had to face (open-heart surgery). Looking back over the past eight years, I can see a positive progression that continues to continue everyday, starting with my waking from slumber.
God is great! Amen
1 John 4:7
My dear friends, we must love each other. Love comes from God, and when we love each other, it shows we have been given NEW life. God is love, and anyone who doesn’t love others has never KNOWN HIM.
Today my Reading in the Word of God started with John 8:12 (CEV), “I am the light of the world! Follow me and you won’t be walking in the dark. You will have the light that gives life.” All translations use variations of those four words “walk, dark, light, life”, but a few phrase them in very down-to-earth ways:
ERV – never live in darkness
GW – a life filled with light
TLB – stumbling through darkness/living light will flood your path
NIRV – they will have that light/they will have life
NLT – the light that leads to life
VOICE – the nourishing light that gives life
