More and more it’s becoming evident that Light and Truth always prevail.
In the wake of the rampant injustice, oppression, prejudice, bigotry, and ignorance that continue to pollute our societies, I’m reminded of the many Bible messages that encourage us not to be afraid, “for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known” (Matthew 10:26).
With the widespread access to social media and video evidence, many evil practices that were previously hidden are now being exposed. Things that used to be craftily covered are being uncovered, and media houses, bloggers, and the average Joe/Jane have no choice but to cover what is uncovered. What happens in ___________, stays in ___________ is no longer very applicable.
A just society is in the business of doing good, seeking justice, helping the oppressed, defending the fatherless, and fighting for the rights of widows. As carriers of light, we should remain incorruptible, full of integrity, even in the midst of lawlessness. Our character and name should stand for something, with loving kindness at the helm.
Love does not rejoice about injustice, but rejoices whenever the truth wins out (1 Corinthians 13:6).

Do not quench the Spirit (1 Thess 5:19)
- Ignite the fire
- Fuel the passion

- God’s gift in you
What are you doing to keep the Spirit ablaze in you?
Light always breaks through, no matter the circumstances.
Keep the faith, your break through is coming.
Light breaks forth like the dawn
Why are babies so fascinated by light?
So much so that my baby boy will crane his neck just to catch the fresh morning light as it breaks through the darkness.
Babies come into this world to remind us to seek Light.
Light gives life: Can’t hide it. Shines in darkness. Directs our paths.
In fact, Jesus—the Light of the world—calls us out of darkness into His marvellous light. So let’s walk as children of Light, children of Day.
Walk into the light

Magnificent view from my bus ride to work.
I especially love the oblong cloud as it creeps towards the bright morning sun,
and the blanket of mist, which gently hovers over the river.
God is the best artist!
God saw all that he had made, and it was very good (Genesis 1:31).
Lines and patterns are all around us. Just gazing at the sky and admiring the elegant interaction between clouds and sun got be thanking God for our beautiful earth.
Cotton candy clouds
Dawn waking to a new day
Sun beams breaking out
