The Light

 “1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And the earth was a formless and desolate emptiness, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. God saw that the light was good;” Genesis 1

Over a deep, dark nothingness the Spirit hovered, and the Lord spoke creation into being. First came the light dispersing the darkness. “God saw that the light was good.”

Hundreds of years passed. Man’s choice to go his own way  had created a barrier between him and God. Into the dark  silence of a longing world, God, through the angel Gabriel, spoke to a young girl:

“The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you;” Luke 2: 35

The promised, long awaited Light was coming. A Light that would disperse the darkness and bring hope and life to a dying world. Always the light -making a way through the darkness. 

We rejoice in HIs coming and give thanks that the Light has come.
