I love it when a good prophesy comes true. The light came one night in Bethlehem. Even now his glory is seen upon us.

Isaiah 60:1-3
Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
For behold, darkness shall cover the earth,
and thick darkness the peoples;
but the Lord will arise upon you,
and his glory will be seen upon you.
And nations shall come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your rising.

I fit into every one of the categories below. I lived in darkness. I could not bear what the wrath of God brought me. When I asked for His help to stop behaving badly, He gave me light. I want to shine for Him.

Ephesians 5:5-8
For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous that is, an idolater, has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
Therefore do not become partners with them;
for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light

I gave a couple of talks in Richmond, Virginia this week, about how God had saved my life. These verses explain what God is up to. Always.

Isaiah 55:10-11
“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,

Changing Seasons, Richmond, Speakers Series
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Do you have trouble with this? Just pretend it is true, act as if you believe it. You will be amazed. Watch yourself become a better person without even trying.

Ephesians 2:8-10
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
not of works, lest anyone should boast.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
Ephesians 2:8-10 (NKJV)

Tired of hearing nothing but bad news in a world that seems to get worse and worse? Here's something to cheer us up.

Isaiah 40:28-31
Have you not known? 
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
his understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.
