Winter Sunrises

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness:
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
(Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)

Even in the cold and dark, You are Light and Life. My feelings don’t change that.

Even in my confusion, You are the Truth, the Way and the Life. My circumstances don’t change that.

Even in the chaos and turmoil, you are Peace. My situation does not change that.

Even in my sickness You are healing. The condition of my body does not change that.

You are the same, yesterday, today and tomorrow, ever loving, ever kind, ever just, ever right, ever good. Nothing can ever change that!

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.

    Dearest Shakti, thank you for visiting and posing this deep and probing question. In essence the answer is simple… I am driven by the Truth that found me… I did not have the ability to find it in my finite abilities and sickly, faulty way of thinking. The Truth found me in my darkest moment… when I tried to end my life with a gun held to my head in hopes to finish it all.
    He calls Himself the “I AM”… the Creator, the Truth, the Way, the Life. Since He revealed Himself to me, nothing in life matters as much as following Him and trying to find out more about Him. So, I write in search for more of the Creator God and with a conviction in my heart of hearts that He intimately sees me and loves me and wants to reveal Himself as I am able to comprehend.
    Jesus Christ said He is the exact representation of the Father. He said about Himself that He came to die the death that I deserved and for the sickness and sins in mankind which are appalling to the Creator. He made a way and died a death that I should have died. … out of love… He is the door, the Gate, the Light and the Way to the Eternal Father…
    Love, Peace, Kindness, Forgiveness, Living Water, Bread of Life, Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End, Kind of kings, Lord of lords… all names of Him who inspires my heart and soul, and for whom I live and write. He is as real to me as the water I drink and the bread I eat.
    Thank you for asking, Shakti and for posting… I love you blog and your deep thoughts and will visit often 🙂

  2. Your post heals as it brings in awareness. Tell me, what kind of inspiration and truth your inner core searches for as you write your posts?

  3. Heidi, this post is so beautiful – the pictures to see and the words to comfort! I needed this one today. One of my kids has been in and out of the doctors lately… God is in control, always.

    Blessings ~ Wendy
