Watching The Morning Star

In the mornings, when I take the dogs for their walk up the mountain road...
I often stop to watch as the light from the rising sun plays it's rays...
among the trees in the distance along the hillsides

the trees sway along with the cool breezes of the new day...
while the sunlight dances and reflects among the leaves and branches

it's a beautiful scene and I never tire of it
this morning light reminds me of an even lovelier Light...
the Lord Jesus Christ

as we begin this new year...
I wonder...
do you watch The Light?
whose Light shines through the darkness of this present world...
That Holy Light who brings the rising of the Morning Star into the hearts of His people?

if not, think on Him...
and I pray that the Lord will graciously shine His wonderful and peaceful Light...
into your soul this new year 

"And we have something more sure,
the prophetic word,
to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place,
until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts,
knowing this first of all,
that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation.
For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man,
but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit."
2 Peter 1:19-21

"I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about the things for the churches,
I am the root and the descendant of David,
the bright and morning star."
Revelation 22:16
