Accept and Embrace Our Own Light

On the path to healing and spiritual growth, it is vital to accept and love ourselves as we are, taking care of our heart. Often, we try to hide our happiness or love, which can be strange and unnatural.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

The question persists: what makes us hide our sadness? Why do we feel the need to always show our best side to others? The Lord, who watches from the heavens and understands all our actions, teaches us that there is no reason to disguise our true feelings. Authenticity in our emotions is fundamental for genuine spiritual growth.

Accepting our emotions, even in moments of sadness, brings us closer to God. The peace that comes from trusting in Him and His plan allows us to overcome any adversity. Maintaining a positive attitude can attract smiles and words of encouragement, but we should not punish ourselves for feeling vulnerable. These phases of sadness and mourning are opportunities to strengthen our spirit and heart.

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

In those challenging moments, we must cling to our faith and trust fully in our Lord. Faith in Christ provides us with the answers we seek, and trust in God is the pillar that supports us. Accepting our struggles and praying fervently allows us to receive the warmth of the Holy Spirit, renewing our inner strength.

"The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.” Psalm 121:7-8

Allowing faith to penetrate our homes and hearts transforms our lives. The light of Jesus, reflected in us, illuminates our loved ones and gives us the strength to face any challenge. It is crucial to free ourselves from the anguish of the past and unmet goals, trusting in the perfect plan of our Heavenly Father.

“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:18

God renews our confidence through His light and guidance. Facing challenges with a new perspective, supported by faith and prayer, helps us overcome fears and sadness. Trusting in the wisdom of our Heavenly Father provides us with clarity and strength that allows us to move forward with determination and hope.

The most noble and challenging mission in our lives is to remain steadfast in our faith. The wisdom and glory of God guide us through the darkest moments, illuminating our path with His eternal light. In the times we need it most, drawing close to Him in prayer fills us with His love and transforms us, enabling us to reflect His glory in our daily actions.
