“You are the light of the world.
A city on a hill cannot be hidden.”
MATTHEW 5:14 NIV
It’s always darkest just before the sun rises. Every cloud has a silver-lining. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! I’ve heard (and said) those quips many a time. But, when dark days come knocking on my door those words lose their shine. When my dreams lay shattered at my feet, words lose all meaning. That is, all words, except the Word. The words of Jesus Christ remain true for any situation I face. Loss. Loneliness. Temptation. Sorrow. Anger. Betrayal. Jesus Christ faced all of these with grace and unconditional love. So, I know that He understands my feelings…for he experienced them. I know that whatever pain I experience, He will walk me through it. I can have hope for the future, because He has overcome the world and all of it’s troubles. There’s gonna be brighter days!
