Jesus, without you we would wither in darkness. 

In us, nothing would grow. Around us, nothing would make sense. We would stumble and not even know what makes us fall.

Your light is life. Your light is sanity, warmth, clarity, and love.

Yet sometimes it’s too much for us. We want to hide in the darkness because we think it’s safe. We want to spread that darkness because we are deceived into thinking that darkness has power.

We try to shield ourselves from You because it’s just too much to be consumed in the burning brightness of your love. We won’t escape without being transformed.

Thank You Jesus, for shining on us always, even when we throw up our hands and turn away.

Thank you for swallowing up our confusion and bringing light to our darkest places. You will never stop lighting our way. Nothing can blot out the burning intensity of Your grace.
