1st let’s address what is Light? It is the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible; illumination; a form of electromagnetic radiant energy; a brightness; something having little weight. These definitions manifest in various forms. As always I like to reveal some verses describing the meaning of the Words I share. In reference to LIGHT in His Word I find these are most appropriate for todays post. Genesis 1:3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light 1 John 1:5 says, “God is Light; in Him there is no darkness” Ephes 5:14 “for it is Light that makes everything visible “….. As always it is to your benefit to read the verses surrounding my choices…in doing so Much more Light will be revealed. Smile
2nd let’s literally look at some benefits of Light? Both physically and spiritually. 1.) the LIght of the sun/ SON boosts Serotonin..read that again then read the verses again. Both do Literally boosts and enhance your Mood. Researchers from the Baker Heart Research Institute in Melbourne found that levels of serotonin—a neurotransmitter that regulates appetite, sleep, memory, and mood—are lower during the winter than the summer. ( it has also been proven those who spend time in the Word sleep better and have a better attitude about life. Ask anyone who reads or listens to even 10 mins a day of His Word) The University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University conducted a study proving Stress and Pain are reduced with Daily Sunlight. They found that patients who were placed in bright rooms reported less perceived stress and took less medication per hour than patients in dim rooms. This study also suggests that even indirect exposure to sunlight (i.e. through a window) can improve one’s mood & lesson their pain. Now back to the LIGHT of the SON, Yeshua, it has also been proven the Light of His Word lessons Stress and Pain. How? Yeshua’s walk of Love itself brings Light to the darkness within which in turn makes your burdens “have less weight” (becoming Light). A brighter Attitude lessens the pains both within and without. I am happy to testify both Spiritually and Physically of the “natural” healing of the Light of His Love and His Word. Check out my little book, “Somewhere in Between” and it will reveal the benefits of His Light in my times of darkness. And here is a site with a great testimony of a woman in New York with painful tumors on the nerves of her feet who decided to seek the Light of the SON’s healing Love in place of surgery : http://www.rdohealingministry.org/testimonials/ These testimonies reveal the Truth in the verse of John 1:4 “The Word gave life to everything that was created, and His Life brought light to everyone.” However, like Everything Else, both the sun and the SON should Be Enjoyed in Moderation. Excessiveness with either destroys the benefits of the Light. You say, “what? Moderation of the SON?” Yes, Yeshua and His Word taken to excessiveness no longer edifies, no longer operates in the benefits of it’s Light & Love but, instead becomes the Bondage of the distortion of Man (taking the Word out of context) closing the door on His Light & once again creating darkness both within and without here on Earth. If you read further in Genesis you will see how in God’s creation there is both Darkness and Light and both do serve a purpose in the operations of His Universe. In the moderation of darkness there is a time of Rest. Plus, in His creation & in the discoveries of Science it is made clear we Can’t have one without the other! There is a positive and negative energy flow within ALL life and one needs the other to perform at there optimum strength. It is in moderation and time spent in both the darkness and the Light, all things Grow and burst forth into the Light producing a good harvest. smile Darkness is like Weeds it can choke you out or serve a purpose. In our outer gardens it is proven weeds have their good side. Under controlled circumstances, a number of beneficial weeds can greatly benefit our gardens. They hold top-soil, pull up water and nutrients, provide food, help control insects and more. In our inner gardens the weeds of Life situations can either bury us in the darkness OR under “controlled circumstances” those weed situations can make us strong as we work our way Thru pulling them out that we to might provide an abundant harvest amoung those we Love. Example: Grieving the loss of someone/something, this weed can be beneficial as we go thru a releasing process.. Or allowing ourselves to embrace the blues and goThru them that we might become aware of what we need to weed out so that the good seed within might burst forth and enjoy the Light of Love to its fullest. Do you see the importance of moderation? It is not healthy to clear cut the garden leaving no support in His grand design. Can you see how both Science and His Word operate as One? Only mankind divides the two and all to often take things to excess avoiding & destroying that which can and Will make us stronger. It is not “natural” to live Life hidden in the darkness or in to much light. It was Not God’s intention in the Beginning & it still isn’t.
Read Genesis 1: 1-31 for the full picture of how Science (nature) and His Word work together as One. Right off the bat it reveals how Light and Darkness are necessary. The Creation of the World : ” In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God (Love)was hovering over the face of the waters. 3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night…..” Clearly if darkness was to be totally eliminated He would have wiped it out “in the beginning”. You see how Light was necessary to balance the extremes of Darkness? in the extreme, darkness creates a lack of growth, chaos, despair, & ultimately death. Yet in moderation: The earth, including mankind, still enjoy some of the benefits of its infancy in creation. In God’s creation, nature and it’s storms, rain, and darkness purify the earth. And check out this scientific article reveals how Darkness benefits our health http://abcnews.go.com/Health/story?id=117447 As this reveals it turns out we need darkness to make our immune systems work. Scientists have now discovered that only when it’s really dark can your body produce the hormone called melatonin. Melatonin fights diseases, including breast and prostate cancer. Do you see HOW SMART GOD IS? He created a Natural healing in His original design of earth. At the same time notice how scientists are just getting it. LOL This isn’t new news…it was revealed ‘in he beginning”…. Boy can Man be slow on the uptake – hard headed is what I always say. Don’t get me wrong, at times I am one who is double hard headed!! Praise God I can also testify, as I go thru my seasons I continually grow, finally get it, and do have my times I too burst forth in His Light bringing a good message which reaps good harvest. (just as He promised.) So, today I give thanks to Science and the sharing of knowledge by our scientists & at the same time I give heartfelt thanks to Jesus (Yeshua) who continually guides me in The Way to operate in both the darkness and the Light that I might gain the best of both. I sign off saying this: Whether we want to admit it or Not, the Truth is; God is the Master Gardner & Master Scientist who created the Light and IS the Light in which both darkness and Light manifest the Best of all things right here on this ole Earth.
Now having gained some Light from the Word of the SON, it’s time I head out by the pool and get the beneficial Vitamin D gained from the Light of the Planet, Sun. May you all enjoy the sharing of these words and may your day be filled with….
Peace and Love!
