We are not waiting for something that might come. Jesus is already here. He is the light that is shining in our lives.

If you feel like you are stuck in the midst of great darkness, waiting for the light to dawn, God is saying, ‘Live as though you are already in the light. Look to Jesus who has already come, who desires to be the light in your darkness. This darkness is not the end.’

Jesus, we invite you in right now to penetrate the darkness in my life with your light. Show me that you are here with me. You know my heart. Change my heart. Make me a person of the dawn, already living as if in the fullness of your glory. Fill me with sure and certain hope that you are coming, that you are here. Come Lord Jesus. I give you permission to be my light.
