Last night my neighborhood went completely dark at about 7 pm. TV, computer, lights…everything went off. I thought of the food in the freezer and refrigerator, knowing that the power outage would probably not be long enough to affect anything, but you never know, and I’ve got a freezer stuffed with beef for my beef-lovin’ stepson who’ll be here at the end of July after what he’ll admit was “WAY too much fish” after 2 months on a sailboat in Fiji and Tonga! But this post isn’t about beef, it’s about ….
HOW DEPENDENT WE ARE ON ELECTRICITY, ON LIGHT.
Another point is: HOW MUCH DEPENDENCE ON GOD IS RATHER LIKE THAT… If one has strong faith, it’s the thing that makes other things work.
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12.
Some of the neighbors came outside to wait out the outage chatting….lots of people walked by and said hello and we commiserated on the outage, etc. When the lights suddenly came up, there was a huge cheer! It was like a religious experience!
It wasn’t much fun in the dark. Stuff just plain didn’t work.
Have a great Sunday…
