When Light Meets Daily Life


A Repost from the archives.

This week I will be journeying with my friend Claire B.
I just love her photography and the project she has pursued this year
entitled,365 light project.
I will be writing on how light meets my daily life using her art.

Shopping carts lined up to be used, dirty wheels, and shiny metal, all look the same, all there. 

A mom comes and grabs one, her hands are holding the shopping list, again. 

Again, the toilet paper, and the cleaner, the shampoo, and the toothpaste, yes, again

There is no milk, or juice in the fridge and again rushing and running, dragging her feet, 

she is here, again.

The wheel is not working, she needs to push harder. 

Her heart is sinking, again; and again she whispers, 

"Again, again, routine again. 

Never ending, always in a circle "

The thoughts of the day, the prayers unsaid, the lump on her throat, again.

My prayer is for you today, my Christian friend; 

if it is you pushing hard the broken wheels, 

trying hard to manage your day again

that you may stop today to see His light.

I have been learning this, 

God meets me in my daily life. 

His light shines on me as I go into my chores, as I push the cart.

Is it useful to have my theology right, my doctrines right, if I can not see His light meeting me in my 

daily life?

I am still learning.

Let your light, O God, shine on me!

Let me learn again, that it is for You that I come and go.

Forgive me again, for living a life without joy.

Remind me, that it is in my daily journey, that I walk towards heaven.

Daily life matters, shine on me, 

O Lord, again!

My first post in this blog, was just about this, Rejoicing in Our Daily Tasks.

My Photo
If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
