When you are in times of trouble it may feel like you are in darkness. Being in the dark is scary; you can't see where you've been, where you are, or where you are to go. We see this battle in 1 John 1:5-2:2.
Listen to God's voice out of the darkness; through the Holy Spirit, His Word, or His messenger. Study and pray over John's writing in 1 John. He is giving us his testimony of how the Lord can and will lead you out of the darkness. Apply to your current circumstance and life.
Seek, love, and live in His Light. There is no better place to be. Amen?
