And the Light shines on...

Some days the enemy can almost convince a person that he's winning. satan gleefully fans the flames of hatred, injustice, violence, lawlessness, confusion and strife and it seems as though he's found plenty of human targets willing to march to his tune.  It's disheartening to say the least. 

Each year at the Christmas service at our son-in-law's church they darken the meeting room completely.  Then one lone candle is lit, which then is used to light the next one and then that one lights the next one and on and on until the room is filled with the light of hundreds of candles.  Jesus is the Light that forever and ever shines on in the darkness, that can never and will never be overpowered by it.  We, His people, are the other little candles lit by Him, 'til we are wholly filled and flooded with His light in our innermost being and personality.  (Join me for the rest of this post on Sunday, July 10th, at Woman to Woman Ministries where each Sunday I share a bit of Sunday Soul Food!)

Also happily linking up with the lovely


  1. That picture is stunning, and the words in that verse are so powerful. Never overpowered!

  2. I love the idea of only starting with a single lit candle! Powerful! At our Christmas Eve service we end by lighting each other's candles from one. Yes, Jesus is light and defeats the dark. Always and forever. Thank you for sharing, Elizabeth!

  3. Hi Elizabeth, I got behind in some of my blog reading, and just read this one today (Thursday.) When I clicked on the link for Woman to Woman, it took me to the current post, rather than yours. I had to scroll through to find it. The other posts were good, too, so you don't necessarily need to change anything, but I thought you should know. Thanks for your many blessings to your readers.
