Day 35: Christ Our Light

"I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

There are so many who woke up this morning feeling defeated even before they got out of bed.  There are so many who see no light at the end of the tunnel because they are overwhelmed by a myriad of problems.  There are so many who fear what lies ahead because of what has happened to them in the past.

But Jesus offers us words of hope when he tells us tells us that he is the light of the world.  If we want to escape the darkness, all we have to do is follow him.  He stretches out his hand to each of us this day to deliver us from whatever darkness may be surrounding us into the warmth of his radiant light.  Come and rescue us, Lord Jesus, and be our light!
