A lot of times we think of being the light when we are experiencing positive things in our lives. The challenges and struggles of our lives may be more often associated with "darker" times. As Desmond Tutu reminds us, "Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness." No matter what we are facing in our lives, we can be a light!
Jesus Christ provides us with a light. Because of His life, death, and resurrection, we can have hope. It is our faith and hope in God that allows us to overcome the darkness we experience in the world. God's love can light our path and can shine through us to light the paths of others. In both the darkest, negative experiences and positive experiences, we can have hope and therefore be the light of the world through all of our words and actions!
Have faith and hope in God through Jesus and then light up the world!
Thank You for the hope that You provide in my life. Help me to show Your love and hope through my words and actions. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
