Arise, shine!

Isaiah Angel-small

“Arise, shine, for your light has come,

and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.

For behold, darkness shall cover the earth,

and thick darkness the peoples;

but the Lord will arise upon you,

and his glory will be seen upon you.”

Isaiah 60:1-2

this is verse is beautiful. i keep reading it over and over. i can’t stop thinking about our Light coming and chasing away all of the darkness. Our Light, our Lord of lords and Prince of Peace, HAS COME.

then this morning, i was reminded of this verse:

“He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.” 

Hebrews 1:3

this Christmas, may the Light of the world bring you hope. Hope that where there is light, there can not be darkness. He has WON and sits on the right hand of the Majesty on high.

last night i just couldn’t resist painting another angel. this Isaiah verse has been stuck in my head all month long and i finally gave in and got my paintbrushes out! it’s been over a year since i painted something just because. over a year. 

i painted it just for me. it’s not perfect. it was rushed. i just had to get it out. does that even make sense? it just needed to be put on paper{or in this case a piece of wood}

but i felt like creating it was a way to process the power that the light has over darkness. where there is even just a glimmer of light, there can not be complete darkness. if the little light of a tiny candle can remind us that darkness can not rule, think of the power of THE one true LIGHT has over the darkness in my heart! over the darkness of this world!!

i also felt like i had to DO something to obey the command: Arise, Shine! it is a command. it is a command to do what the Lord has called each of us to do! i can SHINE because the Light lives in me. i am called to live every day shining with light of the One who made me and loves me. Jesus our Lord, came to bring peace and light to the dark world. and to our hearts.

and i wanted to share it with you. to remind you, that Your Light HAS COME! Arise and Shine, my friends, for your Light has come!

Merry Christmas eve!
