Darkness covers the earth....

We are living in difficult times! It is almost as if there is a blanket of dark mist descending on our world and especially on our country. It is hard to remain positive in the midst of such complex times.

The one reassuring thing, for us all, is that God has seen this all before. It is not new for him. It is new for us, because we are seeing in our lifetime, but God has been down this road before. The prophet Isaiah reminds us that although things look bleak at the moment, God's light will shine through.

"See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples,
The Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn." - Isaiah 60:2-3

During this Advent season, may we come to YOUR light O' God. Change our despair to hope. Turn our dark world into a place of light and peace.

Living in Grace
