The word gave life to everything that was created and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. (John 1:4-5)
The Word gave life and with the Word there is light. Even when there is darkness, (trouble, sadness, financial problems, evil desires, children out of control, etc); having the Word gives light to shine through dark places in your life. The good news is, that no matter how dark it gets you have the Word, so those things will not overwhelm you or cause you to stumble. This light cannot be extinguished! It will shine even brighter when you go through temptations, storms and setbacks as long as you carry the Word in your heart.
Ask this Question: Does my life coincide with the message of this verse? My desire is for you to be the light to others when they are going through hard times. Allow God to speak to you as you empathize and feel the weight of what your friend is going through. Ask God is there something more that He desire of you? And wait for him to speak, so that you are able to brighten someone else that may come across your path.
