The Night Light
As a kid I used to love watching horror movies but it made me extremely fearful. I could watch Jason and Freddy with no issue. But when it came to Child’s Play? It was something about Chucky that I couldn’t get past. I remember my family even joking about getting me one of his dolls for Christmas to further taunt me. I don’t know how they thought that was funny, especially when I would’ve placed him in their rooms every night. (So serious)
It came to a point where I couldn’t sleep in the dark. So naturally, my mother purchased me this royal blue night light that I used to bring me comfort. Without the light, I didn’t feel safe. However, once plugged in, I knew everything would be just fine.
In our faith walk with God, there are some dark places that God will cause us to walk through. Sometimes we complain and get frustrated, but it’s in those dark places that greatness is birthed. Instead of trying to get out, look at what the Lord has provided to help you walk through.
The Night Light is the Word of God. His Words are a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. That even when we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we can be confident that God is right there with us. Wherever your dark place is in life right now, know that God is right there with you. He doesn’t want you to give up, but to instead continue trusting Him.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.”
Psalms 119:105 NKJV
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”
Psalms 23:4 NKJV
