Would You Shine Your Light This Way?

Let There Be Life
Water Color by Candace Huffmaster


Did you take the time to think about the our two questions?

Don't get bogged down if you didn't.  But do click here just to be aware of what they are.  Otherwise, you will still be in the dark on the subject ;) 


If you are like most of us, when we begin scratching and digging at the surface of our questions, what we unearth is much of the same: more questions.  Just as with any excavation site, if we do not find an interesting nugget here and there we have no reason to dig more.  

God being more wise than we are and obviously infinitely more interesting than a basket full of brilliant thinkers, comprehends what it takes to connect with us beyond intelligentsia.  Thoughts matter, but if our thoughts do not affect / participate with real matter then they are of no beneficial purpose in this life.  

I used the ridiculously abstract statement to validate it's own point.  If God is nothing more than words and we are to figure it all out based on words written thousands of years ago - would we not pull our heads out of the dirt, shake it off and move on to higher things?

Look at how the Message translation depicts Genesis 1:

God created the Heavens and Earth—all you see, all you don’t see. Earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness. God’s Spirit brooded like a bird above the watery abyss.

Just keep digging right where you are. I am not going to open up another excavation site yet; scratch a bit deeper with the thoughts below.  Let's see what kicks up:
  • Is there any way light can create darkness? 
  • Is it possible for darkness to produce light?
John 3:27- (I will post it below) are the same verses we have been studying, please sit with them and read them word upon word; line upon line to unearth a real treasure.

It would be fantastic if you would like to go to our website and post the curious bits you uncover.  You may do it anonymously or sent them in privately.  We want to know what you think, because we understand everyone seeking is finding their part to expose His fullness - so come on in and join the excitement!

Kisses,
Candace 

  
The words of John the Baptist: 
27 Apart from the gifts that come from heaven, no one can receive anything at all. 28 I have said it many times, and you have heard me—I am not the Anointed One; I am the one who comes before Him. 29 If you are confused, consider this: the groom is the one with the bride. The best man takes his place close by and listens for him. When he hears the voice of the groom, he is swept up in the joy of the moment. So hear me. My joy could not be more complete. 30 He, the groom, must take center stage; and I, the best man, must step to His side.
31 If someone comes from heaven above, he ranks above it all and speaks of heavenly things. If someone comes from earth, he speaks of earthly things. The One from the heavens is superior; He is over all32 He reveals the mysteries seen and realities heard of the heavens above, but no one below is listening. 33 Those who are listening and accept His witness to these truths have gone on record. They acknowledge the fact that God is true! 34 The One sent from God speaks with the very words of God and abounds with the very Spirit and essence of God. 35 The Father loves the Son and withholds nothing from Him. 36 Those who believe in the Son will bask in eternal life, but those who disobey the Son will never experience life. They will know only God’s lingering wrath.
