Jesus said to the people, "I am the light of the world.  If you follow Me, you won't be stumbling through the darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life."                   John 8:12

A friend of mine took the photo which is above.  Also being a follower of Jesus and a long time reader of 'Reflections', Fred asked if he could send me a photo around which to write a devotional.  Of course, Fred. 

He sent the photo.  I began to ponder, thinking that Fred may have seen and thought differently than what I was thinking.  I didn't want to trample over what the Lord may have been showing him, so asked him to please share his thoughts.

He did:

1.  The little plant was able to overcome seemingly impossible obstacles by following The Light.

2.  Rising above worldly things , the little plant rose above the other plants on the swamp floor - again, by following The Light.

3.  By following The Light, the little plant was experiencing life in a way that the other plants in the shadows below the boardwalk could not even imagine.

As we follow The Light - Jesus - my prayer to the Father for each of us is:

May we overcome seemingly impossible obstacles by following The Light.

May we rise above worldly trials, tribulations and 'things' by following The Light.

May we have a life  in which we experience Life in a way which we cannot even imagine, it is so good.

Thank you, Father, that You have only good planned for us as we follow The Light.  In Jesus' Name.  Amen.
