Evil

God did not create evil. Evil is not like faith, or love that exist just as does light and heat. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God’s love present in his heart. It’s like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light. Unknown

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:21

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5

truth

On the face of it, it must be a bad cause which will not bear discussion. Truth seeks light instead of shunning it. Horace Mann

If you hold to my teachings, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32

beauty

People are like stained -glass windows.

They sparkle and shine

when the sun is out,

but when the darkness sets in

their true beauty is revealed

only if there is a light from within.

Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. 1 Peter 3:4

father

A father is neither an anchor to hold us back, nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way. anonymous

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord . Ephesians 6:4 (NIV)

thinking

The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking” John Kenneth Galbraith

In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.   II Corinthians 4:4

risen

Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;
Death is strong, but Life is stronger;
Stronger than the dark, the light;
Stronger than the wrong, the right…
Phillip Brooks

“You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. Mark 16:6

restored

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.” 

J.R.R. Tolkien

He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Psalm 23:3

shine

 

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

Hearts in Need

When Our Hearts were in Need

To those in sin, God sent us the Savior;
To those in darkness, God sent us the Light;
To those in bondage, God sent us the Deliverer;
To those in defeat, God sent us the Victor;
To those in want, God sent us the Shepherd;
To those in hunger, God sent us the Bread;
To those in pain, God sent us the Physician;
To those in doubt, God sent us the Truth;
To those in confusion, God sent us the Way;
To those in turmoil, God sent us the Prince of Peace;
To all in need, God sent His only begotten Son.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given.
Isaiah 9:6

-Devotional by Roy Lessin

Life is stronger

Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;
Death is strong, but Life is stronger;
Stronger than the dark, the light;
Stronger than the wrong, the right…
~Phillips Brooks, “An Easter Carol”
