To give Light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death. Luke 1:79 NKJV
I felt myself slipping into depression. Sadness moved into my heart and positioned itself to stay. Grieving for my Country, her people and our future is overwhelming for a someone who likes to fix things.
In quiet time, I heard my Friend say to me,
“Peering too long into the darkness causes you to lose your Light.”
This truth pulled me back from the edge of the pit saving my spirit, and bringing hope back into my soul.
I pray these verses brighten your day as we walk in the His Light together.
“To give Light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death. To guide our feet into the way of peace.” Luke 1:79 NKJV
“Nevertheless the gloom will not be upon her who is distressed…upon them a Light has shined.” Isaiah 9:1-2 NKJV
“Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I AM the Light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the Light of life.” John 8:12 NKJV

“…they found the stone rolled away from the tomb.” Luke 24:2
“Bless my hands and order my steps;
Each one according to
Your Word direct.
Bless my basket and kneading bowl.
Weaving time of refreshment, and
Rest for the soul.”
“Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.”
Deuteronomy 28:5 NJKV

Lord may my,
“Mind to be opened,
Ear to hear,
Heart to understand;
Hand to receive,
Foot to stand.
For on bended knee in the Garden,
You fulfilled the Father’s plan.”
“For I have come down from heaven,
Not to do my own will but
The will of Him Who sent me.” John 6:38
