Just Enough Light
your passions and skills to honor God by using the tools He gave you to solve a God-sized problem! The only way someone can solve a God-sized problem is to turn to God for direction, guidance and the necessary tools. He wants us to trust Him fully and to rely on His guidance.
God gives us just enough light in our darkness to reveal the path so we can take the next step. I like to think the brightness of His light is protecting us from the self-doubt, nay-sayers and obstacles lurking in the darkness that surrounds us. We don’t have to see the entire path, just the next step. We only need enough light for clarity and then to get out of God’s way and let Him lead! But remember, to make progress we must walk! Maybe small steps at first. As our trust in Him grows, our steps will become larger. No, we won’t reach the goal overnight. We may stumble or fall along the way. Despite the challenges, keep walking in the light He provides. God will use you as you are, and with what you already know and have. When we follow God’s direction, He will bless us with more than we could have ever imagined.
Some people are beach or lake people. I have always been a river and mountain person. Wherever the place is that speaks to your soul, go there often!
"May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, and leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds."
- Edward Abbey
