“Light drives out even the deepest darkness….”
I got John Ortberg’s “The Me I Want To Be” as a birthday gift and although I haven’t concentrated on it yet, I picked up a few things from it already.
For one thing, all of us is bipolar in our own way. Every single thing written about life primarily writes about the choice between light and dark, the choice between being good and being bad.
All of us are conflicted, at one point or another.
Because most of us strive to become the person God created us to be.
Most, if not all of us would like to reflect God’s goodness.
But most of the time, whether we admit it or not, we fail at doing so.
Even if our lives reflect the goodness of God on the outside, I know that each of us have a hidden monster somewhere waiting to unleash itself.
I know this because I had several conversations with this so-called monsters in my own head.
It constantly amazes me to know that no matter what I do or how I fail Him, God never fails and His love for me doesn’t change.
And it’s not there to judge me, it’s just there to take me back, no matter what I do.
I am humbled, every single day.
