Day 22: Wednesday, March 27th, 2019

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

 

As a young Army officer many years ago I was training in the desert near El Paso, Texas. The training was rigorous, and everyone in my group became very tired one night while on patrol. We had been awake and

moving for several days, and with the fatigue and the featureless terrain of the desert, we found ourselves completely lost. Luckily we saw a very faint light many, many miles away and we began to walk toward it. If nothing else it provided us a direction of some kind to follow. In the morning we found the source of the light on the map and got our bearings.

As Christians we all have found ourselves tired, lost, and confused just like my patrol was in the desert that night. Fortunately, Jesus is the light on the horizon for us. If we follow that light we will eventually find where we are and know where we need to go.

 

Prayer:

Dear heavenly father…we give thanks for the light that you provide. We pray that we will remember to follow that light so that we will never truly be lost again. Amen.
