God’s Light

There are monsters in the closet and hiding under the bed, waiting . . . until Mom turns on the night light. I focus on its soft glow and sleep.

The Lord is my light and my salvation—

    whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the stronghold of my life—

    of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 27:1

Some flowers turn their faces to follow the sun as it passes overhead each day. Plants don’t have eyes to see light or muscles to move; how do they do this?

Phototropism. Plant cells in darkness expand or grow faster than cells in light, so the stems grow unevenly, bending toward the small cells on the light side of the plant. They follow the sun.

I am a sunflower, Lord, turning my face to your light all day. When darkness comes, I know you are with me still, so I prayer with faith still burning brightly in my soul.

I call on you, my God, for you will answer me;

    turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.

Show me the wonders of your great love,

    you who save by your right hand

    those who take refuge in you from their foes.

Psalm 17:6-7

Light Questions:
• Are you walking in the light of life?
• What keeps you from walking in the light?
