Other than my Bible and cup of coffee, opening the window blinds is one of the favorite parts of my morning routine. Why? Because it lets the light in. It’s as if my heart is waking up too. Warmed by the light of the day.

I’ve noticed my mood is so much lighter on sunny days. There is something about letting the light in. Opening ourselves up to receive it. Soaking up every beautiful ray. I believe it’s more than vitamin d and a sunny disposition though.

God is light. In Him there is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5).

Jesus is light. He calls Himself the light of the world. He promises whoever walks with Him will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life (John 8:12).

We are light. As we soak up His light which represents all that is good, pure, true, holy, and reliable we then can shine His light before others so they may feel Him too (Matthew 5:16).

Are you feeling gloomy today? Try opening the blinds of your heart to the light allowing His love to warm you.
