Sometimes when life looks like an uphill climb, it is good to turn around and see how far you have come. God did not promise us an easy life when we accepted his invitation to be his child. He did though assure us that he would walk our path with us. (Isaiah 30:21)
A child turns on a light when they become afraid, and their fear seems to vanish when they can once again see what is around them. So too does our father enlighten us when we are frightened. He said that he is the light of life and that we will never again walk in darkness. (John 8:12) Notice that Jesus said that he is the light of life and not the light of the world. Life does not depend of earthly things to give us a truly fulfilling existence. Jesus is our compass and our light; he opens our eyes to see the world as he does. Walk with him today, and commit it into his hands. Ask him to open your eyes to see his world that is all around you.
