So, here you are, in an empty world. It's just you and the whole world. The sun is beginning to set, and you are stuck in an unfamiliar place. All you hear is the quietness of the dark beginning to settle around you. A shiver runs up your spine as you realize you're completely alone. There is no one around to show you where you should be going. No one to tell you that you're going to be okay.
An empty pit settles in your stomach. This isn't fair.
Why is it so hard? Why are you all alone?
To your amazement, all of the sudden a street light flickers on. A steady hum generates from the light above. You dash to the street lamp and cling to that light because it has suddenly become your only sense of direction...the only thing you can depend on. As the world around you beats darkness, you find a bit of hope now that you're in the light.
Is that an empty home around the corner?
I'll make it. You tell yourself, as the light guides you down a path. And with the light radiating above you, you don't feel so alone anymore. You're okay. You realize. You'll make it through the night, and you'll find shelter.
Now, if you haven't made the connection yet, I want you to think about real life. Your life right at this moment. Think about this world and the nothingness it has to offer on its own. The cold, harsh world that is never content. Are you content with keeping blinders on and stumbling around in the darkness? Or do you need Someone better than yourself to guide you down your path of life?
It's simply your choice. Going back to the little example above, you could have chosen to stay in the dark, too scared to move...but you dared to jump into the light. And guess what? You found shelter, you found a hope for tomorrow! It's as simple as that. You have to make the choice. Do you want a street lamp to guide you home? Or do you want to stumble around in the darkness?
God spoke the world into existence in Genesis, He said, "Let there be light," and it happened! The Bible also says in Matthew 4:16, "The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up."
Lastly, Jesus holds the answers and the key to light, because He said in John 14:16, "I am the way, the truth, and the life."
Have you chosen to find light in the midst of darkness?
