Your name is a light that the shadows can’t deny

Your name should not be overcome

Your name is a light forever lifted high

Your name shall not be overcome 

Jesus, Jesus you make the darkness tremble 

Jesus, Jesus, you silence fear 

Jesus, Jesus you make the darkness tremble

Jesus, Jesus 

(Lyrics from “Tremble” by Shane and Shane)

These words. This song. Oh how they illuminate my soul. For the past few weeks, I wake up every morning and immediately play this song. Why? Because, there are days that the fear within my soul tries to overtake the light. There are days every ounce of my being is trembling, shaking and there are days the anxiety of life can be crippling. So, I choose to begin each day silencing the threats the enemy tries to put on my life. I choose to position my mind, my thoughts, and my heart to embrace all that He has for me. Is that always easy? No. In fact, there are days I need to isolate myself because the noise of the world can be debilitating. There are days I find myself face planted on the ground as the cyclone of life encapsulates my thoughts. And, there are days, that no matter how hard I try to be “happy,” this dark cloud of fear, sadness and loneliness hovers over me wherever I go. However, it is in the moments, it is on those days, I choose, time and time again, the joy and light of Jesus. For, “The Lord is my light and my salvation- whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1)

Where are you today? Do you feel crippled by fear or darkness? Is your soul trembling? Do you feel there is a volcanic eruption waiting to explode with each step you take?  Are you one breath away from collapsing, face first, into a fiery furnace because the circumstances of your life are setting you ablaze, leaving you in a place of sheer disappointment, hurt and brokenness? Oh sweet friend, I know the vicious angst that is welling up within your soul. I have experienced it all and sadly, way too often. Oh how I wish I could embrace you and take this all away. BUT GOD.

God is our healer, our redeemer, our hope, and God is our LIGHT. He says in His word, “The light shines in darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:5). God is within YOU and whatever darkness you are facing, you will NOT be overcome by it. Although His light may seem burnt out or dim at times, remember, in fact HOLD onto this. Although you may have to squint to see Him, I promise you, His light is always shining and directing your path. “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” ( John 8:12). 

Y’all do you get that? Take a moment to be still enough to breathe those words in. When you accept Jesus into you heart and follow Him, you will never walk in darkness because He is the light of life. He cannot be overtaken by darkness and either can you. If He can take a valley of dry bones and resurrect them back to life, just think about what He can do in and through your situation. What the enemy meant for harm, God redeems. That darkness you believed was going to destroy you, God will use for His kingdom and glory. In fact, it just may be the thing that launches your greatest ministry.  Inhale that in. Breathe that in and allow that to be your suddenly moment that changes the trajectory of the path you are traveling. He is that amazing. He makes beauty from ashes and He creates His finest gems out of the roughest waters. 

Allow Him to refine you through the fire. Lean into Him, trust Him, and surrender your life, your circumstances over to Him. Allow Him to ignite His all-consuming light within the essence of your soul and let that light burn so bright that others run towards you because they see Jesus. 

Praying your day is filled with the overflowing love of God. Praying whatever is trembling within your soul is silenced by the name of Jesus. Praying you do not loose sight of who you are and to whom you belong. You are the precious child of the ONE TRUE KING and YOU are His beloved. Praying you wholeheartedly breathe in and embrace His depth of love for YOU. Praying blessings after blessings over you. Praying that with each step you take, you do so with a bold confidence, illuminating the ground as your feet radiate the light and love of Jesus.

Listen and meditate on this song today. Embrace all that He is calling you to do and step out in obedience, even if you are hesitant. You will experience an unfathomable amount of blessings as you embrace the calling He has on your life. Embrace His light and go forth today in His love. He will not fail you.

Love you all ❤️❤️
