Each Friday my writing stems from a word prompt. Five minutes, one word prompt. The prompt this week is … Darkness.
It strikes me funny that I read the word prompt in the darkness of the early morning. But then, much of December finds the mornings at their darkest.
The month of Advent, December, the darkness envelops us by God’s perfect and sovereign design.
“I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness because you will have the light that leads to life.” (John 8:12, NLT)
The wise men followed the star as it guided them to Bethlehem. The light of the star leading them to the Light of the world.
Life may bring us challenges as we journey through the twists and turns, but we, too, can have His Light to guide our way when we are in the darkness of our situations.
In those times of uncertainty, anxiety, and complexity, He brings light to our situation with His wisdom and understanding.
Today He is yet saying,
“If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness.
I am the Light of the world.”
