Even among the tangled brambles of life there are bright spots to be found. Though life can be hard and sometimes quite prickly, there are delightful glimpses of beauty blooming all around. If we stop all our striving and wrestling for a moment, and simply come to the Lord, He will gladly reveal those glimpses to us. As I’m writing these words it’s dawning on me, all the beautiful bright spots Jesus points out are actually pointing right back to Him—He, Himself is the true Bright Spot we long and search for in the course of our thorny, knotted-up lives.
Zephaniah 3:17, “The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing." NKJV
