Today's verses are John 1:5: "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." My child, your life today may be filled with much darkness.  You're not sure of your next move, your next decision, your next step.  Murkiness and confusion may be surrounding you in every area of your life.  Please know that I am not the author of confusion.  I did not create your darkness.  I am the light of the world.  I am your light in your world.

When I created the world, I separated the darkness and the light.  I created the sun and the moon to give evidence of the power of my light over darkness.  I ordered light to be in the day and night so daily everyone could see the strength of light.

I came into the world and into your heart to shine light into your darkness.  My light will always overcome darkness.  My light will always overpower any darkness.  Remember that one small candle lit into a dark room will always overcome darkness.  Where there is light, darkness will flee.

Trust me today.  Find my light in your life.  I am like the sun coming over the horizon in the early morning.  My first rays of light cause all the night to flee.  Then the rest of the day lives in my light. I may only give you the next step you are to take today, but trust my next step.  When you take that one step in my light, I will then give you the next step, then the next step, then the next one.  As you trust my light and obey me over time, you will find we've traveled a long journey together.  You will find that you've traveled in God's light on his path.

Don't allow your darkness to cause you despair.  Seek me.  Seek my light.  Your darkness can never, ever overcome my light.  I will be with you.  I will care for you.  My presence will be your light today.

Trust me.
