It’s Not Easy

taken: Johnston Canyon, Alberta Canada, May 26th, 11:31 a.m.

Walking this path to the waterfalls in Johnston Canyon was a fast 20 minute hike, so we chose to let younger legs pass us by as we just took our time listening to the sounds of the forest and the river below.  In one incredible moment, there was a single ray of light that lit up this lone aspen tree in the forest, and I knew what it meant when Jesus said, “You are the light of the world.” [Matthew 5:14]

What we are designed to do is reflect God’s image to the dark world around us, because He lives inside us.

What we are supposed to do is speak God’s truth to an unbelieving world which is filled with hate, anger, fear, and judgment… and speak this truth in love.

What we are supposed to BE… is holy, set apart for God’s own purposes, just like this lone aspen in the middle of the forest.

In the chaos of life surrounding you today, if you are in Christ, be “The light of the world.”

It’s not easy…
