“Tunnel Vision”

God is not just the light at the end of the tunnel- He’s the light IN the tunnel

Tunnel Vision
In English speaking countries there’s a ‘stock phrase’ we like to use to encourage people who are going through a difficult time. It goes something like this: “you’ll be alright, there’s light at the end of the tunnel.” It’s meant as a comfort, to say, peace is coming. While there’s nothing wrong with this phrase, and in many ways it’s true that there will be light at the end of the tunnel- as a child of God you don’t have to wait until you get to the end of the tunnel to find light and comfort and peace; Jesus is your light IN the tunnel.

Through every hard or dark time you may be going through, any time of uncertainty or testing or trial. God doesn’t leave you to stumble around on your own; He will never leave your side, not for one moment. His Word will light your way and prevent you from stumbling. As Psalm 27:1 says, He is your Light and your Salvation. So you need not be afraid.

Psalm 27:1
The Lord is my light and my salvation— so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?”
Psalm 119:105
Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.”
Deuteronomy 31:6&8
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”
“It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”

Matthew 28:20
And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

I love getting together with friends and sharing with each other over a cup of coffee what God is doing in our lives, it boosts my faith and lifts my heart. That's the aim of this blog. There's a story behind it; It was inspired after a friend gave me a single mustard seed, saying ‘that’s all it takes Jill’. What my friend didn’t know was that the very same morning God had reminded me of a promise He'd made to me over 20 years before regarding writing. I took the mustard seed home, planted it and watched it grow from a tiny sapling to a large, flourishing shrub at our front door. Every time I look at it it reminds me that our God is always true to his promises. Jesus lives in and works through his people, every single day. It's good to share what he's doing! I love talking about Him and writing about Him.
