‘You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.’
- The Lord wants His light to shine through us into a broken and dark world. - The light of God in you makes you different. - Light brings with it the warmth and the hope of all that is longed for. - Be a beacon of light and bring hope and joy to others around you.
Prayer: Lord, may my life be one of purpose and destiny, as I reflect and shine Your light into the world around me. Cause me to be a beacon of hope, a lighthouse of protection, and a source of comfort to others. Amen.

SURVIVING AND ALMOST DROWNING
A person who is almost drowning, is surviving. His head is just above water and he survives. The water is overcoming him all around. Perhaps you feel like this.
John 16:33 ‘In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress, but be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world. (I have deprived it of power to harm you and I have conquered it for you.)
God does not want us to just have our heads above water. He wants us to overcome. The greatest joy is that He wants us to overcome and He wants to help us to overcome.
