Light a Candle

Have you ever awakened from a nightmare and struggled in the dark. You wrestle with the panic and fear, trying to shake off the ghosts haunting your dreams. You know turning on a light would help. Even the tiniest glow helps banish the darkness.

Too often, fear prevents us from doing anything.

At times, our lives are the same. We’ve gotten lost in the dark. Shedding light on the demons that pursue us seems impossible. Sometimes we don’t even realize that there is a light that can illuminate the darkest of nights or hearts or minds.

I think we’ve become so comfortable with the shadows that to do anything else goes against everything we know. It’s easy to become complacent.

But there is a Truth shining in the darkness. It was born one Christmas night more than two thousand years ago. And this light of the world came specifically for what you might be going through. You see, darkness must flee the light.

As you seek to bring new meaning to your holidays this year, think how one candle eliminates the blackness of night.

If you light a candle this year, think about how Jesus came to light up your darkness.

When 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, NIV

Christmas Blessings, Francine

    Amen. We all need the light and those who have found the light need to share it. Keep up the good work.
