Jesus, The Light to Direct our Way
So many times I am frustrated with myself because of the constant struggle it is to overcome my sinfulness. With all of my heart I want to always do right and to be a light to the world. But when I start to feel my sinful weaknesses start to rise within me, I feel tempted to despair. But it is in these moments that our Lord beckons me to come unto Him and to cling to Him. Just as nothing in the physical world can survive or thrive without light, no one can spiritually live without the Light of Jesus. He is to be the sunlight to our souls causing us to be revived from our dark ways. Jesus said, "I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."(John 8:12) The moment that we need Him most is the moment we feel we are the furthest away from him. Sometimes I can be reluctant to run to Him when I feel that I have already failed, but that is when I need to hasten to him swiftly. He alone can direct my weary and oft wandering soul.
