Psalm 112:4 “They rise in the darkness as a light for the upright; they are gracious, merciful, and righteous.”

With all that is in the news and all that goes on in this world today, it is easy to see the darkness.  If we are not careful the darkness can overtake us just as it is attempting to overtake the world.  This battle between darkness and light has been going on since the beginning of time and will continue until the end of time as we know it.  We all play a role in it; we all take part in it.  In the color spectrum there are shades that blend between each color, bleeding from one to another.  In this darkness there is no gray area.  It is like standing in a shadow or standing in the sun.  There is a distinct line and whether you consciously choose where you stand or not you are either in darkness or you are in light.  When there seems to be darkness all around it is hard, sometimes, to keep searching for the light.  Search, and keep searching for the light is true and it is here.  In the midst of darkness people who bring love and healing, care and prayers, nurture and rebuilding are all agents of light.  We can be God’s light in this dark world.  Allow God to fill your heart with his love today.  When you are glowing with love, go out into your world and be gracious, merciful and righteous.  All this will dispel any darkness that lurks.  Be an agent of His divine love and light!

Lord,
Give us what we need to seek your light.  Do not let the darkness take over even one more of your children.  Help us be the light and love that brings people to you and draws people away from darkness.  You sent your Son to bring light to the world.  Help us spread that light and love everywhere to your glory.  Amen.
