So very often in life it can seem that we are living in the midst of dark times. In the darkness there is nothing else we can see, so our exit strategy cannot find a sure footing. Though we may feel that the darkness will forever overwhelm us we can pause to remember a fundamental truth that will change things and give us hope. We can begin by turning our attention to the fact that we are never alone, that God is right where we are at every moment and the light of God is before us and available to us if we will only affirm its power and its presence. When we acknowledge the light of God glowing before us and allow this light of God to shine before us, we can use that light to direct our path and steady our walk. We don’t have to create this light, that is the work of God. As we walk ever toward and into that light, we soon discover that the shadows of life’s negativity, darkness, doubt, fear and defeat are now cast behind us.
The light is always present with us, but it awaits our recognition of it. Let us celebrate its glow and affirm that we walk in the presence of God always.
“The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light.” (Matthew 4:16)
Affirmation: “As I walk into God’s light, the shadows of darkness are all behind me.”
