Night into bright;
Dark into day;
Negative into positive;
That is His way.
Fall into Spring;
Down becomes up!
Lost turns to found,
In God’s holy Son.
All negative is gone.
Defeat? Swept away!
No despair here –
Loves is set to stay!
Shine on! Shine on, my Bright Shining Light!
Transform and change me to invariant white.
Darkness can’t hold me. Old’s become new.
I am reborn, changed utterly by You!

Many people experience change, some for the good and others for the bad. Often the bad becomes good and do great good but only God can get the glory. Only God can transform a murderer into a prophet, a nomad into the father of nations, a slave into the governor of Egypt, a shepherd into a king and on and on it goes!
God is the ultimate life-changer. He changes The Chosen from the inside out. He turns darkness into light – bright light that shines so white it’s rays travel through the ages of time.
Beloved, no matter your beginnings, no matter your present circumstance – there is hope for you in Christ Jesus. He is, “The one who is the true light, who gives light to everyone…” John 1:9. Let Him shine on and through you today.
Meditation Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
I pour into you [seep…seep…seep]
The aroma of holiness: [seep…seep…seep]
My glory, honor and peace [seep…seep…seep].
Into you I infuse Myself and all that I am is all that you will become
but, only if I in you: seep…seep…seep.

Have you ever heard it said, “The darker the color, the richer the flavor,” regarding a good tasting tea? It’s true. The longer tea leaves are left to seep the fuller the taste and the richer the experience. So it is with us and Jesus – we have to seep in Him to become more like Him. The longer we abide in Him the richer, the stronger we become. Beloved, I encourage you today to seep…seep…seep in the presence of the Lord and He will pour more into you.
Meditation Scripture: John 15:4-5 NIV
Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
Obedience equals love for God.
Observe His word my soul;
Beautiful is a willing heart,
Ever reaching for and seeking,
Delighting in submitting,
Ignoring the pull of the world
Even as the soul’s will dies.
Novice no more, my will is now your
Command – to obey is to live
Eternally in the love of the Father.
