John 1:5 That light shines in the darkness,

John 1: 5 That light shines in the darkness, yet the darkness did not overcome it. I woke up this morning without the alarm clock going off. I didn’t want to get out of bed I just wanted to lay there and go back to sleep. I feel this way many days and I am aware a lot of it has to do with the weather conditions, hence depression kicks in. Today is dreary and there is no sunshine. I need sunshine. The more the better. Are you with me on this? I forced myself to rise because I wanted to do my devotional prayer time. Something I have not always done but that has done me a world of good.  Since I have started I do not want to slack and get lazy and it has made me realize just how much I need God everyday. Today I started John 1, I was reading this to myself and then out loud, for me that helps clarify what Jesus was saying. “The light shines in the darkness, yet the darkness did not overcome it.” My thoughts: God, our Lord Jesus, “the light shines in the darkness”, the light being (Jesus), shines within us and even in the darkness of sin (within us) it continues to shine. “yet the darkness did not overcome it.” Yet our sins did not overcome God, He allowed His son Jesus to be born and then die on the cross for all of our sins, so that all sin could be forgiven and allow God to continue His light within us, NOT,  let us parish into the darkness of sin and evil.  How thankful I am for this privilege. I believe we all have this privilege (GRACE) but we have to have faith and accept it, that is what free will is, to accept the light (Jesus) or not. It put a different perspective on my dreary morning. Why let the dreary day rule, when I have Christ shining inside me.
