Light in the Darkness

A full moon shines down on a lighthouse

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.—John 1:5 (NIV)

Jesus reminds us that He is the light of the world. When problems or difficult feelings entangle your heart, ask God to help you see that good things are ahead. He will light the way to a better day.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, You are my beacon in life’s storms. You are always there when I need You and for that I am forever grateful.

Adapted from 60 Days of Prayer, a new publication from Guideposts
