As I was watering my plants, I noticed how this one had begun growing strangely apart. I realized it’s because the beam in front of it was blocking the sun, so it was stretching to reach the light.
There are so many things in our lives that can block the truth of His light, and we have to adjust and sometimes even fight to be in His presence. He has rescued each of us from darkness, and now we are to share that hope to those around us who do not yet know Him. For we “are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” 1 Peter 2:9 NIV
