LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS






   Just some verses and thoughts to meditate on. God's word is always such a wonderful help and encouragement.

John 8:12 (ESV)    12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

John 1:4-5 (ESV)   
   4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
 
Life Application Study Bible Note
   "The darkness can never extinguish it" means the darkness of evil never has and never will overcome God's light. Jesus Christ is the Creator of life, and his life brings light to humankind."

In His light of truth, hope and love we find the strengeth to overcome evil. Jesus said: 33 I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NLT)

1 John 5:4-5 (NLT)    4 For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. 5 And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.

He is our light, life and hope.

John 14:27 (ESV) 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

These verses are such a comfort to me. I've been in such a funk since the horrible nightmare in Newtown. You've given me a little light in the darkness.

Love you dear!
