5th Day of Advent – Advent Doodles by Linda Roberts

5th Day of Advent

Thursday, December 1, 2011

The people who walk in darkness have seen a great light. (Isaiah 9:2; Matthew 4:12-16)


Nevertheless, that time of darkness and despair will not go on forever . . . .

What does this stir in me? Gratefulness that the light has come? Longing for a world without darkness?

I bring these feelings of gratefulness and these longings before you and speak with you about them, you who are pure light.

Questions to Ponder:

How are you longing for God’s light? Where do you need God’s light today?

    For me, the darkness is always inside me just a little bit. It’s not something I embrace (outside of cathartic zombie stories), but I look forward to someday when the darkness is taken away completely.

    I especially like the curtain rod in the lower right corner.

    Your gift of art and depth of His word is awesome, inspiring, uplifting, and supportive. Now that I have caught up to the present day, I look forward to doodles and His word spoken through you each day.

    His word is a lamp onto my feet and a light unto my path.

    We need His light everywhere.. all over our life!

    My prayer would be .. that His light shines in every corner of my
    life..and that there would not be a shadow to be found.. as He fills up
    my entire being.

    These doodles are wonderful. thought provoking,and really enlightening..and interesting.. thank you for sharing them.

       All night long the wind howled and our power went out from 11pm until this afternoon today.   The darkness took on a new meaning and felt eery. There is such a feeling of oppression. i lay is bed awake all night thinking that come morning light, there would be a light and hope for a new day.  Thanks be to God that he sent the true light in to the darkness of our wounded, weary world.
