Troubles? No Problem

February 5, 2018

Reflection Questions: Do I really believe that the Light overcomes the darkness?  Can I truly get to a place where I am able to rejoice even in suffering?  What steps can I take to help me realize the truth that the Light does overcome the darkness?  Will I commit to repeating scripture in my life on a regular basis?  Will I seek to regularly remember all that God has done for us?  Will I practice rejoicing even in the darkness? 

Make this a daily prayer this week:  “Lord, help me to repeat, remember, and rejoice in You and Your light…especially when life is most dark.” 

Wait For It

January 28, 2018

Reflection QuestionsWhat can I do to strengthen my relationship with God so that I am able to “wait for it” when I feel like God is silent, hidden, or inactive?  Can I remember God’s faithfulness by journaling?  Can I impress the truths of Scripture in my mind by more faithfully reading the Bible?  Can I ask someone to pray for me?

The Problem of Pride

January 22, 2018

Reflection Questions: How can understanding the role of pride in my life help me face the darkness in my life?  What idols have I made in my life that contribute to darkness in my life?  Where in my soul is there a void of darkness that is exhausting me?  Who is it I tend to blame for what is wrong in life?  Can I learn to embrace in my heart the reality that God is in control of all things?  Can I learn to rest in the reality that the light and glory of Christ will always, abundantly, overcome the darkness?   How can I personally share the light and hope of Christ more abundantly in the world?

Living By Faith

January 15, 2018

Reflection Questions: One way to see the darkness of life overcome with the Light of Christ is to actively wait upon the Lord in faith.  This process involves a mindset and faith of patience, perspective, obedience, God-centeredness, and joy.  Which of these mindsets comes most easily to me?  Which is the most difficult?  Will I commit to more actively waiting on the Lord in my own life?  Where is life most dark right now?  How can I faithfully wait upon the Lord in that area of my life in order to let the light of Christ overcome?
