Live as children of light– for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true. Ephesians 5:8-9
Do you live as a child of the light? It sounds so easy, doesn’t it? It sounds so freeing. Yet as we live our lives, we find we are plagued by fears and worries…things that snuff out the light. Things that pull us away from the light of Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit.
What helps you relieve your fears and worries? This Sunday our Psalm is a favorite or at least one oft heard, Psalm 23, The Lord is my Shepherd. Reading or saying the Psalms and especially this one often helps relieve our fears. Sometimes there are hymns or fragments of hymns that calm us and center us back in God. Prayer is another practice. Fellowship with each other can provide us with shoulders to lean on and ears to listen to us.
Live as a child of the light and you will experience all that is good and right and true.
Blessings as you finish your week!
