Day 25, the light comes in STUNNING but not the way you might expect…
Together, we’ve seen coral sunsets and bursts of light cutting through fog. But we’re going to try something different.
Listening to light is stunning.
It’s like a symphony
Just keep listening
And pretty soon you’ll start
To figure out your part
Everyone plays a piece
And there are melodies
In each one of us
Oh it’s glorious
The lyrics shine because words hold power and light.
Hearing music or listening to stories can pull our thoughts with such intensity. They bring back memories. They remind us, teach us, point us, encourage us, warn us.
The Bible is full of stories. Jesus taught with stories.
This past week, I had to look up Hebrews 11 for some bible study homework (Priscilla Shirer, The Armor of God – dang).
This particular chapter is called the “Hall of Faith” – here’s why:
“By Faith” men and women from the Old Testament went through some stuff, right? And then Jesus comes along and connects the Old Testament history to his “walk the walk” practices. And now you and I get to read the history, learn the practices, bumble and walk and succeed and fail and SHARE OUR STORIES. When we connect and share our stories (not just the wins but the losses too) we are linking arms and moving forward “by faith” in light.
Open your ears and listen for the light today.
Choose the stories you share at the Thanksgiving table to connect and empower and entertain those around you. And share them
