Day 1 of 30 Days of Thanksgiving: LIGHT!!

This is the month of Thanksgiving.. and each day, Im going to make a valued effort of posting what I am thankful for. Sooo for today..

Genesis 1:3-5 3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

When I first joined my church and started attending women's prayer EVERY Saturday, this was probably one of my very first lessons.. my AHA moment.. and epiphany if you will..

Light is that thing that separates us from darkness. Light being everything that is...

8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8

And let us not forget those things such as holiness, salvation, heaven, peace, love, joy, kindness, understanding, compassion, empathy, truth, goodwill, charity, faith, overcoming, conqueror good health, a sound mind and SALVATION... meditate on these things too.. for they represent LIGHT. 

Darkness being: sin, guilt, shame, idolatry, wickedness, deceit, evilness, ignorance, defeat, greed, death, lust, pride, poverty and hell.

And the beauty of that is... God SPOKE Light into existence. And WHO is the Light? The Light of the City? The Light of the World? The Light of Mankind? The True Light? The Light Who came into the World? The Sun of Righteousness? The one Whose Light Shines sooo Brightly he is the ONLY one to drive out darkness?

Jesus Christ. Our Bright and Morning Star shining ever over the Heavens and the Earth lives inside of us. We have the Power and Spirit of God living inside of us THROUGH Jesus Christ to speak life, LIGHT, into our lives.. into existence provided we have that tiny mustard seed of faith. The Power of the tongue is life or death. Just like when God said on that first day, let there
be LIGHT, and then there was. And it was good. Very Good.

4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. 5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. 8 But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.  (1 Thess 5:4-8)

Today, I am thankful for LIFE. 


The only thing that can drive out darkness. 

And it is so.
