Then suddenly, the full light emerges, as if moved from behind a cloud, and we are enveloped in the radiance in a way that makes us hungry for more of God. We have to stop the rotating door of life and begin building up that relationship with Christ.

We move toward the Light in new and powerful ways and wonder at the splendor of the brightness. But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter until full day.
He can choose to bring calamity onto His creation to make a point and get our attention. God does this to encourage His people to repent and turn to Him rather than sin. We would do well to not provoke our God to respond with calamity. God would prefer to have us walk with Him in the light and allow Him to shower us with well being.

Souls that choose contemporary culture over our Lord and Savior, even when He promises us eternal Light.
