The Living Breathing Light

His breath filled all things 
with a living, breathing light—
a light that thrives in the depths of darkness...
It cannot and will not be quenched. ~John 1:5

From the beginning, He was defined as light.
His breath filled, and continues to fill, 
all things with a living, breathing light.
Oh how dark it all seems sometimes.
But His light "thrives in the depths."

This is our hope today, a day where hearts
are grieving and minds are reeling from
senseless acts of darkness and evil.
The smallest amount of light will overtake
total and complete darkness.
Today, I have lit some candles to remind me
that His light is living and filling all things,
even things dark with depravity.
This light will never be quenched.

And they remind me to pray continually for 
all those affected by this horrific act of terror.
That His mercy, grace, and healing will fill
hearts with the knowledge of His love, 
a love that wins over hatred,
a love that wins over evil.

He came in darkness at the beginning.
He comes again today, filling all things
with a living, breathing light.
Lord Jesus, have mercy

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. 
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. ~MLK, Jr.
