The darkness of this world must always surrender to the light of Christ. It has no other choice. Christ's light shines in the darkness and darkness cannot overcome it, for it has been defeated. Stand in the light of Jesus' radiance today.


I am the light of the world; upholding life and all that is good, true and pure. Breathe in the freshness this morning.Feel it warm you as you turn your face toward my light, shining seeds of faith and hope into your heart. Remember the tiny mustard seed that grew to become a mighty tree sheltering birds and shading the weary.

Begin each day in gratitude, rooting your faith and hope like that tree. Watch as Kingdom blessings ripen full of possibility and promise. When nurtured in love and truth hope blooms with the sweet smell of little flowers and faith grows firm with strong branches.

I understand the night feels long and the darkness holds the secrets of your broken heart. In the shadows I see you wrestle with doubt and fear as the night plays with your mind and loneliness clings. Don’t get lost in the old story that you’re afraid to shake off.

But as I was in the beginning, so, I shall be forevermore: with you.

With you in the lonely hours, loving you, quietly standing watch. Did I not promise I would never leave you nor forsake you? And I Am a promise keeper.

I see you struggle with the darkness. I feel your relief when morning light breaks through. And the morning does come, reassuringly, continually, unceasingly. No matter how long or dark the night has seemed, the sun will rise again.

The darkness always surrenders to the light. It has no other choice. My light shines in the darkness and darkness cannot overcome it. Stand in the light of my radiance. Imagine yourself bathed in my light, filled with relief and joy. Cast off the loneliness. Cast off the old story and step into the promises of this new day. This is your new story. Today is a blessing. A gift.

I Am the God of second chances. I Am the light to which you can turn to again, and again. I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
