“This Little Light of Mine” is a favorite chorus. I sang it as a child and it ingrained in me the thought of lights shining even in times of darkness. Dark times come to all our lives, but our dependence on God can help us go on. Being a double amputee, I have experienced such dark times. Feelings of uselessness come, but the love of God brings light.
This love encourages us to continue to let our lights shine, especially in the darkness. Lights shine brighter in the darkness. This scripture states that even “Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.” God has something for all Christians to do: “Arise and shine.”
Prayer: Dear God, help us to rise above our circumstances in love to others and share our lights; so the glory of the Lord will be seen during this advent season.
