Jesus said, “I am the Light of the world. So if you follow me, you won’t be stumbling through the darkness, for living light will flood your path” (John 8:12 TLB). Is He lighting your pathway, or is there something blocking the Light? It’s time to let the Light shine in. Don’t keep stumbling around in the darkness. Get rid of whatever is blocking the Light and let His presence shine on you and light your pathway to a blaze!

welcome to the dual loose dean podcast helpless new to share the message of hope with those all over the world visit joe hosting dot flash give hope to give a gift today within a guard the shop day and i came across them these really cute little lights solar lights and i was looking at the different i'll say had and i thought these are so cute and i have the perfect place to put these lights there's a place at our side back door when you walk out you begin to walk down this little path and you can't see anything it's so dark i don't have any electricity out there so i thought these solar lights will be perfect to place along that path so that we can see at nags i'm always stumble in trying to stay on the
the path so i took the live put him in the ground it was a beautiful sunny day i thought these lies you're gonna power up it's gonna be amazing i can't wait to take a walk tonight see how my lights are working so i didn't say anything to joel about it but as it hey let's go take a walk so we went outside started to go down that little path i wanted to say if you notice my new lives so we started walking down the path are realised my lights were working didn't say anything to joel cuz i didn't want him to know that i put like they're in my my plan had failed so i just kept walking down the path but in my mind i was so discouraged i thought i thought those lights were just going to work beautiful either solar lights i thought you know what tomorrow i'm taking those lights up and i'm marching them straight back to the store and i'm going to tell him they're cute but they don't work
there now get to me if they don't work so the next morning i got up and took the life now started looking at how it was a begins we have examined it and i noticed under the bottom in the corner was this little betty tab i thought i've seen this before you're supposed to pull a tab so that what is inside the lie can be illuminated by the sun that's what gives it the power so i thought well ok so i'll win pulled all the tabs put him back down thought tonight is the night gods you want him to come take a walk he's so he would notice my life insurance they were shining brightly they illuminated my path now john wasn't as import
with my life as i was but they were working perfectly once i've figured out to pull the tab so that they could be powered by the sun you see we're very much like those solar lights we have to large tab that means remove anything it our lie that would block does from allowing the sun you see we have something on the inside of us and it is the sea of god and when we allow his to shine on us when do all we can do to bask in his presence get more of him we are also illuminated say we were meant to stumble around in the darkness we were meant to not know the way to go god says that we were meant to shine like stars in the universe but
you ve gotta love as selwyn to shine in our line features like tat tat we ve got a remove anything that's stopping the light from shining on us i have a tree in my back yard it's about tenant why does a pretty pretty big tree but it's a strange because the tree grows at an angle and i look at that tree and i think that is so weird one day i was out talking to my yard man and i said this train grows so funny and he's involving the reason is trees growing at an angle is because there are so many shrubs and other trees around it trying to crowd out at fly this treaty is literally struggling to try to grow towards the light you see the tree is doing its best to survive it knows that it grows in the lie so it's struggling to get to
light are some of you today struggling to get through the lie because you ve allowed too many things to crowd your lie maybe business is crowding your life from the light maybe you have some friends that are covering your lie and it's not allowing the light to shine on it because they don't have the same values that you they don't understand the importance of being in the house of god a prayer of worship but you keep going back to those friends because i ve been friends for a long time you see that yard man said if you'll away some of these bushes if you'll make some room for the light
come in its train latterly quit struggling and it'll major as major stray not and go straight up to this it may grow properly fear i want it encourages today to prove our lives to look it what's stopping us to be only exposed to god to be fully walking in his presence at all times sometimes over commitment even a good things can keep us from the time spent with guy business isn't always good we need to prove some of the business out of our lie you know some people don't even realise this that unforgivingness and anger can cover our life from being totally exposed
to the son you see if we allow anger and bitterness to stay around too long guess what the sun may come up in the morning if we let the sun go down on our anger it stays too long the sun may come up in the morning but it can't reach us because we ve separated ourselves through bitterness through anger through unforgivingness you see when you can't forgive is how do you expect me to forgive you you can't even see me to allow forgiveness to blow you
let this break or take those we the above forgiveness out of your lie route that anger don't allow it to stop the flow of god in your life pull the tab so to speak and say i know is now you see you may be struggling today you may be struggling to grow towards the light you can make a decision to do what it takes to straighten up again you know there's a scripture in the bible that said the people of israel they were so discouraged they had so much comment against them it says that they were so discouraged
they couldn't even believe they couldn't even see god in the midst of their challenge because all they can see what's more discouragement they kept their eyes on what was wrong instead of looking at one god can do you see that discouragement was a cloud that was blocking the light they could even lift their eyes and looked through the clout to see guy and we have to realise discouragement when we face challenges we cannot allow it to get inside of us discouragement is like a cloud that blocks the light from our lie you see we ve got to let go of discouragement and let god shine his life how do you realize that maybe had been raining several days in
in the house a lot or you go to work and you come home at night it's gloomy and its rainy and it just changes your perspective you just think hand this rain has got me down i don't know what it does it just kind of does onto our psyche but then the light burst forth and it's like oh my goodness the sunshine and you begin as i want to go outside i want to do something i want to get out in the sunshine it's been cloudy and rainy for far too long you see god once his light to burst into your light that very same way the things that you are right do the things that you are stuck in he wants that light to burst in and you to move forward but you gotta remove
fear the discouragement in your lie so the god can burst in with his life and his life and he had dinner by anything that separating you from letting them as so in shine on you you know it so important that we spend time by ourselves with ourselves in god's work time alone with god reading his word you see the bible is alive and powerful the scripture says it is god breed words they're not
words they are not like the words in a regular book a newspaper the bible or god breed work and it is so important that we spend time in the world now some people think well that's ok you know what i listen to preaching alison applaud cats and i'll tell you what when you spend time in the world will make that even richer they say i don't really need the bible i was talking to a guy and he says i don't need the bible i got joel sorry joel it's true i'll keep joel but i will try and explain to him the reason he needs to spend time in the world it's a relationship with guy you know said times i read some scriptures especially in the old testament and action i don't understand it at the time i'm sitting there but do you know what i'd do before ozma my bible i thank god i thank you for your word is alive and powerful but
divides anything whether i understand that you are you appreciate all these were so these words are breathing back on me they are causing me to be able to rightly divide my lie to make the right choices the right decisions because i've spent letting god agreed on me i can go out and breathe on my life to be up to be a good steward of my life to help other people you see it is so important the bible says that the word of god is a lamp and to our feet it is a lie and to our path it will shine you in the right direction don't think well i didn't get anything out of the word today because the meat you if your store that word gotta bring it to life in you your brain
into life in you but you're going to take time to sit in three with god ten minutes a day start right there sometimes we gotta get out of a house whatever it takes you have ten minutes earlier when i was a young girl i remember my me and my friends we like to worship the sun we would we didn't realize you know you ve just put sunscreen we put oil all over us we do five minutes on the frightened and five minutes on the back so we would bake evenly read the sunshine on us can i tell you bob on the front and five on the back lead
god's work by even lay in your life even listen god is a good guy he wants to show his light on you there is nothing that he can destroy there's nothing that he can't get rid of there's no habit there's nothing that he can't break in your life if you will only expose yourself to the essen don't let anything keep you from it shake off discouragement here that anger hit in the word of god in remember what jesus said and john
