John 1:1-9

Saturday, March 25
John 1:1-9

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being 4in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. 5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.

There have been many times when I have found myself in darkness, and each time there was something to latch on to, a hobby, a person, a thought, that pulled me through. I consider these blessings sent by God " sometimes it was a small light, sometimes a simple focus in the storm, but it was enough. There are times when I have been that anchor for someone, trusting in my faith that no matter how hopeless the situation, that I could support them in some small way.

Heavenly Father, help us to carry your light, to be your light, wherever we go. Amen.
“Jesus Christ, you are the light of the world; the light no darkness can overcome; Stay with us now, for it is evening, and the day is almost over. Let your light scatter the darkness, and shine within your people here.” Procession from Holden Evening Prayer Service of Light, Marty Haugen
