Scripture: John 1:2-5
Reflection: I think it is safe to say, that all of us have experienced darkness and light in some form or another in our life time. I am not talking about the light and darkness we experience in a power surge or when Duke Energy turns off your power or lights. I am talking about the light/darkness in our everyday lives, the pain and suffering we experience sometimes in silence and sometimes the pain/suffering we share with each other. But the scripture says that God is light and in him there is no darkness. For a very long time I lived in darkness and fear every day of my life. When I turned my life over to God, the light of hope was born within me. This advent season, I am asking God to help me be a light leading others out of darkness. What will you give others this advent season? Maybe we should see giving in a new light. Our actions should remind others of Jesus coming and his loving ways.
Prayer: Father God, we ask you in our times of fear, help us to remember you are with us. Father, keep coming when we least expect you and when we most need you. These and many other blessings we ask in Jesus name. Amen.

A whole year in the Word creates opportunity to form habit and routine. That level of consistency allows us to deepen our relationship with Christ in ways we have probably never done before. And the Lord knows, we sure do need Him in this messy world. ~ Bobby McKinsey
