Photo-A-Day: Shadow

I have been out most of the day, and keeping an eye out for shadows that looked interesting, but to no avail, and since I just got home at 10:30pm, this will have to do. I do like the shadow of trees against the moonlit sky though, especially when it’s cloudy.

Looking for shadows though, made me realise something. You can’t have shadows unless there is some light. If there is no light, there is only darkness. Then even with the smallest pinprick of light, a shadow is cast. And the brighter the light, the more stark the shadow is.

So it is with God, the Light of Life. If we let even the smallest ray in, the darkness in our soul begins to disperse. At first, as His light shines on all that we have horded in our hearts, lurid shadows are cast, showing up the worst in us. It leads us to remove those things which cause the shadows, until we are completely filled with light.

I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.” [John 12:46 NIV]

  1. Not a fan of shadows or darkness, even though I do suggest we do crazy stuff like ghost tours from time to time! So blessed to have the illumination of God in my life. πŸ™‚

    • Really? I love the dark. Especially if I can see stars. πŸ™‚
