In the darkest places of our lives, we have an infallible and perfect light to guide our steps in all things.
Most of us are not nearly in that kind of place, but following the God of Psalm 112 who is revealed fully in Jesus—loving what the Lord loves and hating what the Savior hates—has enough potential, of burden, joy, disappointment, pleasant surprise, doubt, and faith, to need the occasional tune worth humming. Let one find you.
Like light in the darkness, the promises of God bring hope. Like a boat firmly anchored through a storm, we find our firm hope in Jesus, the anchor of our lives.
Maybe instead of trying so hard to find the way back home, the little girl needs – I need – to stop, take a moment, and realize that as much as I seek after God, it’s really God who’s seeking me.
On this Christmas Eve, we rejoice because the Light has come, and we eagerly await the day when the Light will come once more. But in the meantime, let’s share the light with each other. Let’s speak with kindness and compassion. Let’s act with hope and love. Let’s look into each other’s eyes and see the wonder once more, the wonder of having our own lights to shine.
If we see any light, which is almost every moment of our lives, we are seeing a representation of Jesus Christ as creator, healer, and redeemer. The truth that Jesus is the light of the world is there all the time for us to see.
