What keeps us from getting something done... say homework? Golly jeez, there's Facebook, Blogging, Tetris, reading and sleeping. A lot of things keep me preoccupied from the things I have to do. Now there are also a lot of things that can preoccupy us from seeking the Light, or seeking Jesus. Is it because we had a bad day? Is it because our faith needs strengthening? Is it because we have other gods? Is it because God isn't in the center of our heart?
Sometimes, our responses are like trees. Through the leaves and branches on a tree, you can see a bit of the sun. The light is there, but it flickers and dims regularly. Sometimes, it takes initiative, courage and responsibility to thrash down the branches to see the true light: the true brightness and the true mightiness of God.
