Lights that Flicker
“A servant of God must stand so very much alone that he never realizes he is alone.”
Sometimes “Lights that Flicker” do fade or go out altogether.
In the early stages of “the Way” disappointments came. People who were lights faded out. Those who once stood strong turned away and this still happens today.
We all have clay feet at one time or another. If we travel back to the “Garden” for a moment, we find Jesus in the midst of distress. He asks his friends to “stay here and keep watch with me.” They soon fall back to sleep and he is left alone.
As individuals or as a collective, lights can flicker and fade for a period of time.
When important individuals go away, we are sad. Yet it is meant to be; time for all involved, to move on. Now what?
Finding solace in the “Light of the World”, the one that never extinguishes is our strength.
Tune in and seek the face of God; the eternal Light of Love, the one who promises, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
“You are beautiful, be my Light!”
