The absence of light

leave a comment »

I heard the absence of sunlight in Denmark would give you bad effects on your physical and mental being. My friend who has been living here for the past 10 years just called and she said whenever you feel tired when you did not do anything much or whenever you suddenly got depressed, you might be suffering the effects of the absence of sunlight. Wow. Maybe I am.


So, I came to church with a heavy heart on a heavily windy Sunday. I bowed my head and asked him to lift up this thing in my heart and mind that has been consuming me for weeks. All I ever want is enjoying the gift of life without being distorted with things that I wish I have. Then… came a whisper in a song…

So what could I say?
And what could I do?
But offer this heart, Oh God
Completely to you

I asked him to fix my heart. And he said, in essence, that I need to offer my heart to Him completely first. That actually make a whole sense, isn’t it? But why it seems so difficult to do that. Maybe the absence of sunlight makes me blue and melancholy and sensitive and stuffs. But I am glad that it’s the absence of sunlight and not the absence of Light.

Have a wonderful week ahead. Let His light be never absence in our lives.
