my husband has this quirky thing he does.

he showers in the dark.

me i need all the lights on.

otherwise i’d totally be cleaning my teeth with shampoo and be knocking things over left right and centre.

the other day he reminded me that i needed to buy shaving foam when i was next shopping.

the thing is, though, i had brought it, about 2 weeks ago.

it was on our shelf in our bathroom where all the shampoos etc are kept

but in the darkness

he couldn’t see

it was right there

but he couldn’t see it


sometimes in our lives the key to breakthrough, the key to joy, the key to freedom

is right there

in front of us

in our reach

but we need to turn on the light to see it


In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.  John 1:4-5


what do you need to shine the light on in your life?
