From Darkness to the Light

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has NOT overcome it. JOHN 1:5

I could not help but wonder, if all of humanity were in the light since our birth, what our life would look like so far ?

The topic i am about to unwrap considers us all,would we like it or not most of the people are in the “dark” in terms of our faith, life ,believes ,values, about how we look at life,is it worth living ? Well…it is!

The moment we come to this world we are not “free” we don’t get to chose our parents , or where we gonna be born,or where we gonna live , or what our name would be, or are we gonna be rich or poor . Everything is almost predetermined . But in one thing for sure we DO have a choice, and that is are we gonna live in the dark OR are we gonna live in the light. The person who lives concisely in the dark, he do not know why he is living, and purpose of his life, and goals of his life he cannot see those things because he is in the dark. On the other hand, person who lives concisely in the light, he exactly knows why he lives and the purpose of his life because he lives in the light and he can see. And who can give you the purpose of your life is your father the God. Me personally , i was fighting about this topic most of my life. I had secure life in my country, i had everything i needed, except fullness of life and joy of life. The feeling when you wake up and no matter what the day would bring, no matter what kind of work you do, or anything that life will bring ahead of you will just bounce of of you,and you will wait every test in your life with a smile and security. But not security in yourself, but in God alone. That feeling i got when i started to trust in God more seriously because i didn’t have any other option. I Move my life to another country, and testing and growth in my life just started. I was too proud, to full of myself to ask for anyone’s help and i believed in myself that i can do all by myself. After 5 years of working like that, my health was ruined i had high blood pressure and i was on medications and pills to calm myself down in age of 30 , my goals in life collapse because they seems to be always far from me, no matter how much i worked they seems to be always ten steps ahead of me,the world just chewed me and spit me . Basically job was all that i had in terms of income for quality in my life and status that i foolishly believed my powerful position would bring . I didn’t like what i become, i was starting to be “the world” i started to be inhumane and to be very much sarcastic towards everything and everyone. I had zero tolerance to the people around me and no faith in fellow human. I taught the good man was the one who suffers the most and i taught i have to be good only when someone is good to me and when is needed , or so i taught not so long ago. I was “smart” and very arrogant. The change in me took place after i basically lost my job over night and my health deteriorated. And one day in my office a day before i go from my work,i basically fell on my knees and ask God for help , because no one could help my arrogance and my fullness (emptiness) but God himself. I was desperate and i ask from God to fill me with his presence ,to fill me with peace in my heart and to give me purpose, to fill me with wisdom and understanding and love. I was “broke” in myself . Sure enough, i didn’t wait for long , tomorrow morning i received call i did not expect, a job opportunity that i dream about since i came to this country where i am now, and 5 years after they call me, after i bow myself before God, confess my transgressions and ask from him To clean me whole. I woke up tomorrow morning as a different man. Since that day everything else is history, today after one year walking with God and in his love and trust and his grace, i am a different man, a man that trust and love God i may say with all my heart ,with all my mind,with all my strength and with all my soul. Since that time i have never been sick and all my life i am in sport 20 years in martial arts and 10 years in weightlifting, i have never been more sure in myself and God alone provide that for me, i never had more clearer picture of where my life is going and what is the purpose in my life. I turn my life to God and all my trust is on him, not to the world…the world will come and go, job will come and go,loved ones will come and go, but Love of God and his Grace will endure till the end of time.

After wondering for thirty years i found my purpose and that is Jesus Christ,the creator of heavens and earth and all living,seen and unseen. I will Quote one poem from the times when Vietnam war break out, it was written by a soldier just before he enter into the battle zone:

Lord God, I have never spoken to you,but now I want to say how do you do? You see God they told me you didn’t exist, and like a fool I believed all this.Last night from a shell hole I saw your sky,I figured right then they had told me a lie.Had I take time to see the things you made,I would have known they weren’t calling a spade a spade.I wonder God if you’ll take my hand,somehow I feel that you’ll understand.Funny how I had come to this hellish place,before I had time to see your face.I guess there really isn’t much more to say,but I’m sure glad God that I met you today.I guess zero hour will soon be here,But I’m not afraid since I know you’re near.The signal, well God I’ll have to go,I like you lots, I want you to know.Look now this will be a horrible fight,who knows I may come to your house tonight.Though I wasn’t friendly to you before,I wonder God if you’d wait at your door.Look I’m crying, I’m shedding tears,I’ll have to go now, God, goodbye.Strange now since I met you,I’m not afraid to die”

My advice to you is Find your purpose, find your light, and place it in the top of the mountain so it may shines strong for everyone who wonders to see, that Jesus is the way the truth and the life.
