What a huge difference! All day, I sat in wonder because I could now. Really. See. It was so much easier to read my computer monitor and to do my work simply because I could now effortlessly see. It's so funny that I didn't even realize how dim the room was because the light bulbs gradually gave out less light.
Light is a game-changer.
It's amazing what you can see in the light. For instance, often when we have a snowfall, the skies are cloudy and gray while flakes are tumbling down. After the snow has fallen, the sun will burst through and turn the softly blanketed grounds into a glistening crystalline cover. It's the same snow, but the light made all the difference.

Another example I've frequently experienced is sunbeams glistening on the water. What a dazzling display of light! I've often imagined the beams looking like stars or even a stairway to heaven. So beautiful and radiant!
In the same way, when Light comes to a life that has been experiencing dark times, it is just as dramatic as a sunrise. Things that should have been plain as day are now revealed to you. You smack yourself on the head saying, "why couldn't I see that before?" You couldn't see the obvious because your focus was wrong. You were looking in the dark - in negative gloomy despair. Truth can never be found there!
Like a moth to a flame, set your sights on being drawn to the true Light. He promises to be found if you look for Him.
