Travel Journal To Contentment, Week 10

We are content when we walk in the light of God!

Question: What are you afraid of? Most of us are afraid of something!

Are You afraid of snakes? Are you afraid of spiders? Are you afraid of all things reptile or creepy crawly? Maybe you are afraid of those eerie clowns that seem to have a freakish, perma smile on their faces?  Actually, I think everyone may be afraid of those!

Maybe your fear is a bit more serious. Maybe you are afraid of being alone. Maybe you are afraid of heights.

Fears and phobias are real and they can be debilitating!  

A fear turns into a phobia when it becomes a fear that is a persistent, irrational, fear of a specific object, activity or situation.  Fear sends our nervous system into overload!

I have a fear that sends my nervous system into overload. I am afraid of the dark!

As far back as I can remember, from the time I was a tiny girl, I have been afraid of the dark!

The minute the light goes out, I feel that funny feeling in the pit of my stomach.

If there is a stream of light coming from a window or a cracked door, or better yet, a night light in the room, I feel better. I feel a peace knowing I can see what is around me!

Funny thing is, the minute the light is turned back on, or a flashlight illuminates the area around me, I see that everything is the same as it was before the light went out.

In I John 1:5 the words that Jesus speaks about LIGHT brings comfort to all of us regardless of what fear we struggle with…

God is LIGHT, and there is no darkness in Him at all.”  I John 1:5

GOD IS LIGHT, His Love and Presence shine on us no matter what circumstance we find ourselves in, no matter what situation we are faced with and no matter what state our government is in!  

God’s Light shines through our distress and brings peace in difficult times!

God’s Light shines through our hopelessness and brings Hope where there was none!

God’s Light shines in the darkness and illuminates the path so that we can walk with confidence and direction!

The best part of all is that if God is living in us then His Light is shining through us! We are able to walk in the Light as He is in the Light!  We do not have to give into fear, we can allow His Light to shine and His path to be made clear!

I admit that I still love waking up in the morning and seeing the light of the sun streaming in through my windows much more that the darkness of night. But I sleep safe and sound knowing The God of Light is present with me always!

God’s Bright Light breaks through any “darkness” we are going through! It breaks through worry, anxiety, sickness, job-loss, relationship breakdown, self-doubt, and yes, even the coronavirus and if the candidate of your choice is not winning!

God’s Light is brighter than anything we face!




Walk in His Light my friends! Your steps will feel lighter and easier as you keep in step with Him!
