Lightfastness - May His Influence and Dominion Never Fade!

I just wrote an email to a friend, and for some reason I just started writing affirmations and stuff that seemed to mirror scriptures that have been hidden in my heart - not for any particular reason that I know of, it just flowed out in one stream, with no pause. I've been experiencing the Word of God in a new way lately, and I guess it is partially because of that. It is strange and glorious to see the Spirit of God at work in my life. It is humbling because my ways are wretched, and I am constantly able to do evil of the worst degree, for my flesh has neither been done away with nor perfected. Yet He is drowning out my darkness even as the thread of my earthly life continues to fade. As I fade, I pray His influence and dominion in my life never fade, even as my body is sustained by but a breath. Hopefully this little ditty of stuff has something good or encouraging for someone reading.

The Light. The Light. The Light. THE LIGHT! It doesn't make sense. I didn't "see" the Light, but I felt it... I continue to feel it. May it never leave me! He has transformed me. May I never take my life into my own hands again! May I never equate darkness with Light or choose to return there. For God spoke Light out of darkness! He has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. In Him there is NO darkness at all - not even a shred! He cannot be tempted by evil nor does He tempt anyone! He is holy. All authority in heaven and on earth has been given unto Him... yet it has always been His, for it came from Him. He is the First and the Last, the Alpha and the Omega. Everything exists by Him, through Him and for Him! He sustains the earth by His mighty power, and but for His love and mercy we are not consumed. His mercies are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness!

May you be richly blessed by the power and authority of Jesus, the same Spirit who lives in me, the same One who raises to life from death! May the name of Jesus be eternally praised!

I'm moving into a new apartment and don't have all my infrastructure set up yet. I will be without internet access and phone for a bit. Thanks mom and dad for helping me move some stuff this evening - and of course for your loving company. I covet the presence of God's people. He is providing an endless and bountiful supply in my time of great need. Praise Him for it!
