“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light.
For those who lived in a land of deep shadows— light!”
-Isaiah 9:2 MSG

A Time to Think … “Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine.”  ―Ralph Waldo Emerson

A Time to Act … Are you standing in your own light, creating a shadow where you cannot see the hope and healing God has for you? Move away! Walk into the light, leave the darkness behind and embrace the joy of living that God has given you.

A Time to Pray… O God of shadows and light, move me when I cannot see my way; move me when I am blocking the light for others; move me from my fears into your glorious light of grace, mercy, hope and peace. May I shine with your light to help others who are hiding in the shadows. In your strength and power I ask this, AMEN.
