Absence of Darkness

Rochelle Indo and Melody Acey

Light gives all of God’s glorious creation the ability to see things more clearly. It illuminates the understanding and it brings knowledge to something that was once a mystery or a problem. Light is an important agent in our lives. It stimulates our sight, improves our mood, helps in concentration, and sets our sleep cycle. All of these benefits are good gifts coming from our Heavenly Father. Imagine our life without Light.

My dear brothers and sisters, God fills us with His Light. Why keep it to ourselves? The Light of Christ in a believer is to be on display for all to see. Let that Light within you be a Light shining without.

As Mathew 5:14-16 says: “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16.

Even on our darkest day, we are Light. More so, on others’ darkest day, we must be Light for them.

“I am a Massage Therapist. Every day I get to see the wonders of God in our bodies. It is why I write a little from that perspective. Medical Massage is soft tissue work for Injury, Illness, Stress, and Repetitive Motion. All of these effect the wellness of a client. Each massage I give, I marvel at the way God knit us together. The ability to assist in the body’s own healing process is what I love most.”  Melody Acey

How wonderful that believers are involved in spreading the light of the life of Christ in the darkness all around. The Good News is… I have never seen darkness beat light. Try it for yourself. Go in a dark room and flip the light switch… which one stays and which one flees? This one is scripturally based. When Light comes in darkness flees! Light is the absence of darkness. It is darkness greatness enemy, because Light is more powerful. While light can penetrate the darkness, darkness is unable to have the same effect on light.

About Rochelle

D.N.A. of a P.K. – My Story Born and raised in coastal Georgia, I had the distinct privilege of coming up in a home of ‘CHURCH FOLK.’ I was considered a PK; many of you know the term translates as ‘Preacher’s Kid.’ My beginnings were, in appearance, a life of luxury and prestige. Other kids looked up to the PKs and pretty much followed their lead. Why not? They were the best examples, right? Not so fast! Preachers’ children are not always the epitome of all that is holy and good by any stretch of the imagination. I would be remiss if I did not include that Preachers are not always the epitome of all that is holy and good. In many cases, just the opposite. For me personally, the preacher I knew was a monster in a suit or clergy robe. Between the age of 3 yrs -14 yrs old, I was in church 3-4 times a week, for 4-5 hours at a time. (black church, y’all. Some of you can relate). With all of that… I never saw Christ in the home. How sad is that? I left the home… or should I say, the home left me. You see, I was managed quite well. Oh, I was provided shelter, food, clothing (second hand clothes while the preacher and first lady wore the finest). We rode in the finest cars; the church took great care of the pastor and his family. Much was provided… yet much was lacking. Darkness lurched in many corners of that home. I would encourage each of you to visit the sister blog for the 3 part series of my story... beginning with D.N.A. of a PK -
