Dear Lord, 2019 has started off with so much uncertainty, so much loss, and so many struggles. Right now things seem bleak and for many doubt is trying to take root. During this time we pray that our eyes, our hearts, and our minds remain open and searching for your light, your grace, and hope. Help us to not only be Christ like as we rebuild but, to also be the seekers and finders of light in the darkness. Amen.
No matter how dark our world may see, there is no darkness that can overtake the light. One little tiny speck of light will break through the darkness in even the darkest of places and nights. In the beginning, God said, “Let there be light.” Even the darkness is not dark to God. God’s Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light to our path. If there was ever a time in our world when we needed to be reminded that Jesus came to BE LIGHT, it is today. It is now.
