What darkness are you facing right now? In searching and allowing God’s presence, where can you find God’s light, even if it is just peeking through?
Creator, we are honest with you. Sometimes we are stuck in a rut and find ourselves in a place of ignorance or distrust, confusion, or feeling beaten by everything that surrounds us. Gently remind us of your love for us and that even in the midst of these long nights, you are still there, shining your light.
~ Kristen Hoffman, Coordinator, CCS and National Junior High Conference
