Twelve days of Christmas: 2

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

Genesis 1:3

In the dark chaos, God said, “Let there be light.” I wish it were more often that I remember that I can count on the Mystery to create light when I am in the dark chaos. I struggle with PTSD and there are some days  where I cannot find my way out of dark times. I accept those days as “couch days” and just allow myself to lay in my self-pity. I have done this for so long that I often forget who I can trust for the light. I am not failed when I ask for this light to be created in my mind. But in my flawed humanity, I forget I don’t always know how to do everything for myself. 

Where is this light needed in your life? Let there be light. Is there a dark area that the light needs permission to shine in? 

Sit today with your eyes closed using mindful breathing. Vision the dark areas in your life and ask the Giver of Light to shine there, giving permission to the light if needed.
