I was home sick from work today. I closed the blinds in my room because the light hurt my eyes.
It made me think that when we are spiritually sick, away from the things of God, when we see His light, it can hurt. It can remind us who we used to be or convict us of things we are doing that we know we really shouldn’t be doing.
But as we come back to “the Light” there is so much powerful healing. We can begin to live in freedom free from whatever had hold of us in the darkness.
This great quote from Martin Luther King Jr. sums it up.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
