Let The Light In

I love Cody Carnes song, "Let The Light In". "Let the light in, Open up the windows, let the light in... Fling wide you heavenly gates Let the King of glory in Let the King of glory in Come ride in on Your people's praise Let the King of glory in..."

When we are sad, mad, hopeless, hurting, burdened, weary, etc we can change our focus by letting the Light in! Psalm 119: 105, "Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path." God's Word changes our focus. Matthew 11: 28, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." No matter what our circumstance is, we can go to God's Word where we can immediately get hope, assurance and clarity.

Light has many benefits. Sunlight enables us to see, helps us grow, calms our nerves, strengthens our immune system and eliminates darkness. God's Word, His Light, is essential for our spiritual health! We live in a dark world and we need Light! God's Word has treasures of hope that will guide us, promises to encourage our hearts, godly instructions on how to live and a reminder of how loved we are. If you want to change your mind's play list, go to God's Word and let the Light in!
