Our daily re-calibration

I was just watching an episode of Catalyst regarding our internal time-clocks... that's right, clocks, not clock.

We are told that inside our body, each of our organs and systems have their own timeclock. The liver, our hormones, our cells. All are on a daily routine based on their own timeclock.

Amazingly, the brain is the master timeclock. Every morning, as soon as our bodies see light, the master timeclock sends a signal to all the other timeclocks in our body - and it recalibrates them. All the clocks are, once more, in sync with the master clock and their own timings.

If this recalibration doesn't take place, our bodies get out of sync and that's when we get mood swings, illnesses, weird temperatures. Our bodies are preparing for different events at different times. For example, people who work night shift - their bodies are keeping them cool for sleep, even though their awake. Similarly at night, their bodies aren't releasing insulin, even though they're eating, and they become insulin resistent (the very thing that is meant to supply their body with nutrition and energy).

This daily need for our bodies to be exposed to light is no different to our souls.

John 1:9 says, "There it was--the true Light [was then] coming into the world [the genuine, perfect, steadfast Light] that illumines every person. "

Jesus is the Light. Everytime we spend time with him, we can re-calibrate the workings of our heart, soul and mind to the master timeclock. We can make sure that we are in sync with His timings and His master plan.

If we don't have our daily does of His light, then our lives get out of sync, we become moody, we don't function as we should and even when we're provided with spiritual food, we start resisting it - and not letting it supply us with energy and strength we need.

Have you had your exposure to the Light today?
