I remember growing up thinking this picture of perfection where nothing was wrong and life was perfect was something to strive for. I think many of us feel that way at some point. But it’s not realistic, and certainly not what God has asked of us.
There will be struggles, difficulties, and times when everything seems to be crashing down on us. It is so easy to let these things overwhelm us and swallow us into the depths of despair, but we must refocus our sights on the One who dwells within us. He is the Bright Light in a darkened world. He is all strength, and joy, and peace. He has promised to give us the strength of eagles and the peace that passes all understanding. He can reach beyond any darkness you may be faced with and bring glory and honor. You may not see it today, but look to Him and trust that His promises are true.
May His light shine brightly in your heart today! No matter how dark it gets, always look to the Light.
