Bearing the Light

“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light,” Isaiah 9:2, Matthew 4:16. Just as those words of Isaiah are echoed in Matthew’s gospel, so too have these words been echoing in Mary Conway’s heart of late. Sometimes it is just so dark. Do you feel it? Have you found yourself walking in darkness? In her latest blogpost for The Well, Mary offers words of living hope that it was the ones waiting in the darkness who saw Him first.

MIRROR: My Inner Responses Reflect On Relationships

The glass mirror as we know it today is only about 200 or so years old. For most of human history it was only in still water where one could see what one ‘looked’ like. Which begs the question: at any moment, do you know what you ‘look’ like? Not identifying features such as the shape of your nose or color of your eyes … but do you know what you ‘look’ like to others? When others see your face, do they want to approach you or avoid you? When others see your face, do they feel welcomed and loved or not so much? When God looks at you, does He see His own Light reflected back? Heidi Lepper Barrett explores in her latest post for The Well’s blog.

The Legend

“I believe loving one another must first begin with our relationship with Jesus. I challenge you the next time you pray, to close your eyes and have a seat with Jesus.” Destiny Welsh shares a new post at The Well’s blog, reminding us the more time we spend developing our relationships with the Lord, the more He will form our hearts to His own.
