Happy Jesus Day:
When I sit and watch things around me, I see a bigger picture than what’s before me, like a “candle.” It begins its life tall, firm, solid, and beautifully colored; it causes all darkness to disappear once it is lit. In such ways we started our journey that way. Once we accept Christ, as we read the Word, we begin to change; each day the candle is lit, it changes also. We started to grow in strength and faith as we studied the Word. The more the candle is used, the first to go is the candle’s firmness. The light does not cast such a bright shadow anymore. As the candle burns day in and day out, the color fades, and the firmness begins to leave as it melts; the statue becomes much smaller. Sometimes as believers, we are the same as a candle. We lose more of ourselves by not caring for the things that help us to be faith walkers in the Word of God.
