The Parable of the Hidden Light

Path Through the Woods

Path Through the Woods

Now, it’s an inviting 2 rut road through the woods but a month or so ago it was more inviting. That’s when I started looking at it as I drove past on the highway. I kept thinking I needed to stop and take a picture – but waited until last week to finally do so.

A month or so ago it had one particular sight that made it more inviting. That was before the trees were so full and the limbs and leaves hadn’t put on a burst of growth (lots of rain!). Particularly the one bush in the middle of the photo on the left side of the road. It covered a spot that revealed the field beyond the woods and the blaze of sunshine from the morning sun.

Thoughts of journeys through the dark woods into the light and other such post themes came to mind. But, I guess the theme now is – if we hesitate long enough, the light can become obscured. So, let’s enjoy the inviting paths into the light before we lose the way.

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 ESV
