Darkness and Hope
The Upward Look

“The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.” Isaiah 9:2 KJV
We are still living in a dark world filled with the shadow of death. Is there hope for a world filled with evil, hate, fear, grief, and despair? Yes, there is hope! Isaiah prophesied about a great light shining on those who have walked in darkness. We celebrate this light coming at Christmas. The light of the world, the only hope for the world, is Jesus! It is only through Jesus who changes hearts and changes lives that evil and darkness will be changed to good and light.
Lord Jesus, help me to share Your great light, love, grace, and mercy with those in darkness. Fill my life with Your light and love!
