The clouds stretch endlessly above us; we are enwrapped in a blanket of gray. Still, for Christians, this is the Season of Epiphany, a season of light. Gray, rainy days can remind us where the source of our light comes from. Sunshine is awesome! But Psalm 119:105 reminds us, “Your word is lamp to my feet and a light to may path.” Think of a verse from scripture that brings light into your life – “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, they shall be filled.” “I am the way, the truth, the life.” “The Lord is my refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble.”
Any brief passage of scripture that speaks to you will do. Let that phrase run through your mind today. When you face a difficulty or disappointment, when you feel peaceful and happy, when you feel anxious or sad, bring that “word from God” to the surface of your consciousness, repeat it a few times, think about it for 30 seconds. I believe you will see the light of epiphany shining even on gray days.
Grace and peace,
