At daybreak a great light broke through the canopy and swept across the forest floor. With only a few moments to enjoy the morning, I was sitting quietly when the penetrating light cut through the woods and shined on this little fawn.
The scene struck me and Matthew’s quote of Isaiah's text popped into my head:
"The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
a light has dawned."
Our world suffers a great darkness, but Jesus declares Himself to be “the light of the world” and promises those who follow HIM “will have the light of life.”
I’m counting on it.
Psalm 43:3 - “Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling.”
