Children of the Light

I was thinking back to the time I spent in the presence of Our Lord and this thought lingers in my mind:
He knew me. He knew me better than I know myself. The Lord's knowledge is complete, unlike our own. His knowledge is one that frees us to be our true selves. Others see us through blinded eyes and we often carry this burden on our shoulders. Their perception of us is incorrect and leads us to a false view of ourselves.

The Lord is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. You cannot take a breath without His knowledge. All is eternally present to Him. Live as children of the light. He is aware of all your sins and faults. Every thought you have...He is aware of. Nothing is hidden from He Who Is. Therefore, there is absolutely no point in hiding anything from Him. Rather, place everything before Him - hand it all over. His Divine Hand will mold and recreate you in His image. Bring everything into the light and He will fill you with His Light. Abandon yourself to the Lord and He will set you free. True freedom. You will know yourself in Him.

"For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of the light, for light produces every kind of goodness and righteousness and truth."   Eph. 5:8-9

"Awake, O sleeper,
and arise from the dead,
and Christ will give you light."   Eph 5:14


  1. Beautiful Mary! It almost scares me to realize that he knows everything about me. There is nowhere to hide from his love!

    Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog! I am so humbled.

  2. Anne,
    Isn't it awesome! We live in His Love!

    I miss reading your blog with my morning coffee. Now that school has started, sometimes
    I can't get on the computer till late.

  3. Mary,

    Many years ago, I realized the futility of struggling against God. Whether I liked it or not, He is my Sovereign King and all that I can do is follow Him.

    I made an act of absolute confidence in Him one day. Essentially, I told Him to take care of me because I couldn't do it myself. He has taken care of His part of the bargain, but I have to do my heavy lifting, too.

    Thanks for the inspiring post and God bless,

    Brother Juniper

  4. Brother Juniper,
    I, too, realized the futility of this, though I needed a conk on the head first. I spent many years in the "school of hard knocks",before I gave myself into His Hands. Best thing I ever did!
