April 16 a year ago

This is a journal entry from the daily reading i did today from 2008. It is always interesting to look back...

"Walk while you have the Light, before the darkness overtakes you." John 12:35
"We all have moments when we feel better than our best, and we say-I feel fit for anything; if only I could be like this always! We are not meant to be. Those moments are moments of insight which we have to live up to when we do not feel like it. Many of us are no good for this workaday world when there is no high hour. We must bring our commonplace life up to the standard revealed in the high hour." -Oswald Chambers

This affected me greatly.

i feel as though God has blessed me with light these past few months. i know that God is teaching me to "believe in the light", so when the darkness inevitably returns, i can live as i lived in the light.

i feel VERY blessed by God. i want to feel blessed by God even when things aren't going my way.

i hope i can remember the things i've learned lately and apply them in Life's nitty gritty.

That's the beauty of a journal- reading it in your own writing makes it hard to argue with the insight you had in the high hour. I'm glad for this season for you to recharge a bit...and I pray it lasts a while.
