Whatever is at the center of our life is what will shine for others to see. One of the beautiful parts of life is that center of life is always change; from education to career to family to health. We spend so much time centering our identity in these things that when life changes we lose ourselves in the pit of darkness. It is into this darkness that God’s servant, the Light of the World, comes and make us His lighthouse.
The season of Epiphany is a season of light. In this season, we are returning to a familiar children’s song to be our guide. In this first week we are reminded that light always rises in the face of darkness. When light rises, we can too. Sometimes, darkness has to surround us so that the light within us can burst forth. When it does, it has the power to dispel every corner of darkness and transform it into the the light of Christ.
