May 7th – Our Darkness, Our Light

Where there is shadow, there is also light. Difficulty may abound, but within and around there is growth and accomplishment – not the accomplishment of the world, but the accomplishment of My will through you and in you. In comfort there is deception. Deep roots grow from adversity and trial. Comfort is for the rest from your labor, but growth is in the labor. Joy remains from battles won in righteousness. Find strength as My child in the midst of the storm. Turn toward your foe with faith. Lift your head to the Father of Light, even as the wind and waves encircle. Call to the Comforter, who holds fast His children in the torrent. In each trial you are made newer, driving out the weakness of faithlessness, and filling again what remains with the new man. Peace, be silent, I have more than the helm, for I hold the storm. My light penetrates the darkness, and the darkness will not overcome it.

John 1:4-5 (ESV) – In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.  

Bottom Line: It is said that we are either in a storm, coming out of a storm, or heading into one; experience says that’s the truth. Storms often happen in the workplace, and the more people you work with, and the greater your responsibilities, the greater the storms can be. Jesus is there with us at work, using the circumstances to grow us and perfect us. Even the really dark, ominous storms are fully in His control. Remember He is there and He cares for you. Have faith all will be good in the end. Look for His light, and push through.
