Things are not always what they seem from their shadows. This morning I started running my bath water and noticed a long legged spider trying to get out of the way of the rising water. As he slipped and slithered on the white enamel surface, it looked to me like two spiders were ascending and descending. Eventually he made it and scurried away and into the corner under my console.
In the photo above, the bird’s shadow looks much larger than the bird itself.
Sometimes our lives are marred by shadows of the past. We all experience bad things and we all make mistakes and hurt others. However, when we allow the shadow to grow into something larger than it really is, it can steal our happiness and peace.
Jesus said, “I am the Light of the World. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” We all know what happens to shadows when we shine a light on them. Let us allow Jesus to shine His light on the dark shadows in our soul.
