Jesus spoke again to the people. He said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
There is a gift of light waiting for those who choose to be warmed by its glow. It shines through moments of darkness and was found in a manger long ago. God prepares us to be warmed by more than what the world has to offer. Jesus is the light! He provides peace, as we prepare our hearts for what’s to come and wait to be led where HOPE is found.
He shows how to leave the darkness behind. He fills us with STRENGTH to make us stronger and helps us wait in patience as we learn to faithfully TRUST. His light continues to shine as we seek Him with ALL of our hearts.
God sent Jesus to the world so He would experience the heart of humanity and lead us to Him. Christ opens our hearts to find PEACE in His presence. He shows how to focus, even on days of doubt. And when we need to be reminded of His holiness, He demonstrates mercy and grace He helps us find courage and calm.
There is a gift of light waiting to shine on those who welcome Jesus. We won't have to dwell in darkness if we choose to surrender fear, turn our eyes to the One who saves and humbly allow ourselves to be held by the Savior. God will guide us. He will help us remember why the SON will shine with great reward if we ready our hearts and gratefully choose to receive Him.
Dear God, thank you for STRENGTH that comes from You. Warm us with the glow of Your holiness and fill us with PEACE as we continue to TRUST. We will LOVE You with all of our hearts and embrace the love of Jesus. Thank you for helping us witness what happens when we wait in patience and ready our hearts to receive. Thank you for loving us through every single moment of our lives and leading us from the darkness. Amen
