Light in the Darkness

“The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.” Isaiah 9: 2 King James Version

I think if we will be honest with ourselves there have been times in all of our lives when we have walked in the darkness of criticism, sarcasm, despair, discouragement, heartaches, heavy burdens, loneliness, fears and doubts. Then Jesus, who is the light of the world, lifted us out of the darkness into the light of His unconditional love and understanding. “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8: 12).

Joyce Landorf Heatherley, a well known author and speaker, said on one of her teaching tapes “Someone once said to me “This is a long tunnel. I can’t see the end of the tunnel. I don’t think there is an end”. Jesus, You are indeed the light of the world. You are also the light of hope, happiness, joy and peace. When everything looks dark and we can’t see the end of the tunnel, it is then that You shine Your light of love into our hearts. Thank You for loving us so much that You care when we are hurting.

If you feel like you are in a long tunnel and you can’t see the end because of the darkness of despair and hurt in your heart, reach out and take the hand of our precious Saviour. He is waiting for you to come to Him. He longs to comfort and encourage you. He loves you very much. He died on the cross for you so that you may have eternal life and live with Him forever. Run as fast as you can into His waiting arms and allow Him to comfort you as only He can.
