The Lighthouse

The pressures of this world can pull us away from the true source of life. It is not that the pressures are an excuse. There are job deadlines, problems with teens, problems with toddlers, elderly parents, production at work, just life in general. No Christian purposely puts God on the back burner. We talk to Him all day, every day. The problem is that sometimes we just try to get through the things on our own.

A grey day reminded me of this and the open arms of the Father.

When the days were grey and misty on the ocean, ships use to have a very hard time seeing the light. They lost their way if the lighthouse did not shine its light. That lighthouse stood there in grand fashion, rotating its light for all to see. The boats found the light, and the glimpse gave them the idea of which way to head before the lighthouse rotated to another position. The boat followed in that direction until the light would come again, reaffirming the correct direction. That lighthouse never left. It remained in its standing position constantly, ready to guide.isaiah-60_1

Sometimes I allow that light to rotate out of view. It has never left, I just lost sight of it. And there the Father stands constantly, arms opened wide…ever ready to receive me. I might get lost in the dark, but He swings back around and shows me the way! I was never really lost, I was just not seeing the light.

I run to that beam of light! I need that light to illuminate truth and spotlight assurance. I am so grateful that He is always standing, ready to show me the way. Ready to show me the true source of life. Ready to guide me and remind me of how I can make it through the pressures of this life.

Have you ever lost sight of your lighthouse?

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 56 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 40 years, married 37 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. We have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. It wasn't always easy, and I like sharing some insights from those "mommy" and "teaching" years. I also want to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
