Occasionally it seems that we lose our way. It happens to the best of us. The darkness of night descends around us, and we can no longer see clearly. The bright sunlight is obscured and the road, we once easily maneuvered, now seems narrow, winding and hazardous. It is one thing to navigate hills and dangerous curves in broad daylight, but attempting them in the dead of night is another. Without familiar landmarks to guide our way, each bend seems treacherous. Life has a way of blindsiding us. We are frightened when dark, heavy clouds envelop our lives.
Prayer: Lord, Your Word tells us that when we fear (respect) You and are obedient, that we no longer walk in darkness. “Let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon His God” (Isaiah 50:10). We trust You with our lives. In You there is light and life.
