Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Are you walking in light, or are you stumbling around in darkness? Can you see your path, or are you disoriented along an uncertain path? Jesus wants us to follow him boldly. The way may not always be easy, but the destination is assured. Most of all, you won't ever have to have a night light — you're assured that even in the deepest darkness, you will have Jesus as your Light, the only Light that gives life.

My Prayer...

Wonderful and tender Shepherd, please give me a faithful heart. Even in my deepest moments of darkness and despair, I want to be able to find you as my Light and to share your life with others. In the name of the One who is never darkness, Jesus, the Light of the world, I pray. Amen.
