“We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won’t need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to their shining – they just shine. ” – Dwight L. Moody
Today my Blog is titled “the Light side” because I Love star Wars and not ONLY because I wanted to have a reason to write about it because if you know me than you know how much I love star wars, but because of the way the story goes.
It’s all either DARK OR LIGHT, there is nothing else. I love it there is no in between there is only what it is. So God has shown me completely how much he desires for us to jump in on the Light Side… Where we find our place with Him is in the our
“Secret Garden”. Yes what my blog is called which is “My Secret Garden”. Because what I was nudged by the Holy Spirit to do is to show you what he shows me in this place.
In My secret garden there has been conflict and there has been victory, but in my Secret Garden I’m always on #theLightSide!
Does this make sense? I hope So!!!!
One thing I really want to make clear to you is when we go in our Secret Garden Jesus isn’t looking for Perfection but he’s looking for you. So he desires you and in that place you have your conflict and your Victory! We need to decide the side we choose. In the last Movie of Star Wars there was some conflict right? The Conflict was within the new characters Rey and Kylo Ren (Ben) they both have conflict on the inside she Believes he can come to the Light side and he wants to do life with her on the Dark side. You see when we have conflict within us there sometimes can be some kinda of struggle. Here is a video clip of what I mean.
I want to share with you something you may already know which is the story of How pearls are made.
Natural Pearls form when its irritated because off a grain of sand that gets in the clam or the oyster and literates it and creates something beautiful. To Live on the light side we cannot compromise who we are because of little irritations or conflicts within us. As you can see from the Video clip above there was conflict in Kylo and we all thought he was gonna kill Rey yet he didn’t he killed Snoke, but you see the conflict will never be resolved until you choose the Light Side with Jesus. You’ll be like that irritated pearl who never lets anything in to his heart and nothing beautiful is made because you don’t allow Jesus to heal your heart. We need to understand that even in Conflict Jesus is our source. Through it all he’s with us if we will allow him to be the Leader of our lives and if we understand being the Light is a life style not a phrase.
So tonight I was listening to a teaching from WorshipU by Jenn Johnson Lead Worshipper at Bethel and she shared..
How many of face day to day things that maybe isn’t DARK or LIGHT its pretty gray, so there are many things that fall in the gray area and actually some gray areas can be darker than others. Its Called the “Gray scale” ( its an actual thing look it up on google) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grayscale
Anyways all this to share with you that with those gray area questions or Conflicts that’s where you need to lean and partner with the Holy Spirit. Bottom Line he needs to be your forever partner, but now especially because if God is wanting you to be with Him and you’re living separate for Him than you need to ask Him should I do this or nah? The only way we can see clearly the Light is when we partner with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is team #TheLightSide! So the main thing I want to share with you there is still only Light and Dark and in those areas thast are gray Partner with the Holy Spirit he abides in everything!!!
Living in the Light Side we don’t ever compromise who we are in Him never.
A story about me is this I love Star Wars as you know and I got a new phone case and wanted to get my rhema verse on the back but they didn’t allow that. So I called my dad and spoke with Him like I should’ve got the name “Jesus” on my phone case so people would know how to represent his name and my dad Laughed and said Lexi you are the light you don’t need to put Jesus or even a scripture on your phone case to show people you Love him because you Live it.
