May today be the day you pull back the curtains and let the sunlight pour in

When the sunlight pours into the room, it does not mean that everything is seen and understood right away. In fact, even in the most well-lit rooms, there are still shadows under the desk, the chair, behind the bookshelves, behind the bed frame. But the thing is, when sunlight pours into the room, there is enough of it to remind you: shadows do not hold forever. Eventually, they became more that figures and shapes, and you can see the objects for what they truly are.

There may be some shadows in your life that do not seem to have been touched by light just yet. Maybe there’s some uncertainty and you’re desperately waiting for answers to be made known to you. As you wait, remember this, you can still turn your eyes to the places where you can see light pour though. Sunlight may not have filled every corner of the room, but it has filled the floor. It has filled the ceiling, your bed, and the space beneath the door. Life is the same way. We have to live with the reality that we won’t have all the answers when we want them. We have to accept that our human brains can only process so much, and we have to wait to see what will be revealed to us to in time. But that does not mean we cannot delight in the beautiful things that Light has already shown us. Light still shines bright in the direction of hope, peace, joy, and love...even in our uncertainty. We can still choose to turn our attention to what is greater than us, no matter the shadows that find us.

You may not feel like you see Light in the way you used to

This year, you have already had your share of your worries and doubts, and things you have not been able to figure out, but I just hope you are able to hold onto this truth: Light is still pouring through. You may not feel like you see Light in the way you used to, but I promise you, there are still all these little places where Light still comes pouring in, reminding you again and again that things are still coming to life here, in the world around you, and deep within. — Morgan Harper Nichols

You were made for chasing oceans.

You were made for chasing oceans. You were made to brave the deep. You were made for the adventure of learning who you were made to be. For every fiber of your being is woven with endless Light that burns like fire through your darkness, like stars on silent nights.

And you have always known this since the days of your youth. And all of these years later, you live out this truth:

There is so much more to me.

Far beyond what I can see

So I will keep on chasing the depth,

For I am far from finished yet.
