Divine light is my ultimate source of illumination.
If power goes out during a storm, I may find myself using a flashlight or candle to light my way—weaker substitutes for the stronger power. The same holds true if I am feeling lost or doubtful. Perhaps I find myself struggling because I am not looking at the situation through the illuminating peace and power of God’s presence. Reconnecting with the Light is easy—all I need to do is ask. Turning within during a time of prayer shifts my vision from dim to all-seeing. What changed in that moment? Certainly the divine flow of love and light was there the entire time. The difference that prayer made was realigning my focus into the all-beingness of the Divine. The more I go to the ultimate source of light, the more it shines through me.
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.—Genesis 1:3
