When the Light Meets the Dark

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
I John 1:9

 
I was listening to a song on the radio the other day and a line in the song caught my attention.  I know … all the lines mean something.  But sometimes words just pop out at me, either in songs or when I’m reading God’s Word.  It’s called revealed truth; it’s when God shows you something.  Something just for you.  And I love when that happens. 
 
The song is, Healing Begins, by Tenth Avenue North.  The line is, when the light meets the dark.  See, when the light (Jesus) meets the dark (the lies of the past or the lies of the present or even the lies of the future) the darkness has to flee and then the healing begins.
 
Nine years ago, I was surrounded by the wall of shame and guilt that I had built around my heart.  And then one night, I let the walls come crashing down, because I couldn’t stand the façade of fakeness another day.  I let the light of Jesus, shine into in my heart; the light met the dark and the light won!  And everything changed!
 
I don’t share my story because I’m proud of my past.  My past is ugly.  But Jesus took the ugliness away, and through my broken life His light shines through.  And He uses that light is to draw others to Him, to His healing love. 

I want to encourage you to listen to this song “Healing Begins by Tenth Avenue North”


 
Let your walls down, please.  Let Jesus heal your heart.  Let His light meet your dark.  
 
Jesus, this song fills my heart with joy.  Your love blows me away.  There is true freedom in you.  I can remember the pain, I can remember being broken, but I can’t feel it any longer. And it’s not because I numbed it away.  It’s because you healed my heart, you healed my hurt, and you filled my life with you.  Thank you bringing your light into my dark.
 
I love you Jesus!
In Your name I pray,
Amen

God’s Blessings Upon You!
