Light in Darkness

“The Lord is my light and my salvation — so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?”

Psalms 27:1

It seems as though the world is getting darker and darker each day. Horrors that hid in the shadows for far too long are now being brought to light again, and it’s honestly devastating to see the brokenness of humanity.

Humanity as a whole appeared to be sleep walking for so long, and are only now becoming aware of the chaos that surrounds us.

We are broken and lost. So when I (naturally) feel overwhelmed by all the devastation I turn to The Word.

God is my light – so I don’t have to fear the darkness closing in around me.

He is my salvation.

My Savior.

He is my fortress, and I can find refuge, safety and protection in Him.

I don’t have to tremble with fear at what is happening around me. If I have placed myself under the shadow of His wings, I will be okay.

Am I going to have moments of doubt, worry and anxiety? Probably. I’m a Follower of Christ, but also still human. I just have to make a conscious decision to turn back to His word, and to remind myself that He is always in control.

His word is filled with promises, truth, peace and strength.

God, I’m thankful that I have Your word to lead and guide me during this time of uncertainty. I ask for strength today moving forward.
