The Purpose of Light

John 1:6 God sent a man, John the Baptist, 7 to tell about the light so that everyone might believe because of his testimony. 8 John himself was not the light; he was simply a witness to tell about the light. 9 , who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. NLT 

I don’t think there has ever been a time when I have more clearly seen the “Light.”  I really can’t even understand it myself.  As odd as it is to write these words in the midst of grief over my husbands death, I feel the power of love, life, and thankfulness and light more completely than ever before. 

This is my important testimony to you: The Light that has broken through the darkness of grief reminds me the “birth that comes from God” does so much more than overcome the darkness of death.  You can depend on Jesus’s promise to give light to every circumstance of life…even death…so you can be comforted to continue.
