Thought for Today


As we get more involved here in the community we see the need for Light in so many areas of life.  There are marriages in pain, people struggling to feed their children, youth looking for significance in the wrong places.  I know these problems are not unique to Belize...they exist around the world. There seems to be darkness everywhere.  May those of us who pray to the Light call upon Him to enter into the darkness of our neighborhoods and bring wholeness to those in our midst who are struggling.

  1. So true, Alida. There are many who are walking in darkness and looking for answers. Jesus, the Light of the World, is the only answer.

    I pray that as Christians, people will see that shining light through us.

    Blessings,
    Joan

  4. Well said Alida. Well said. The Light needs to spread across the world. Too many are in darkness that shouldn't be in darkness.

    Thank you for this verse for today.

    Love always,

  16. Hi Alida - thanks for stopping by my blog today.
    I don't have any issues uploading pics to my postings, it was when I was trying to upload a new picture to my profile that I got the error message.
    I figured it out & all is good!

  19. Alida, I so enjoy visiting your blog!

    John 1:9 "The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world."

    Jesus is that "true light". Wherever we take Him, we bring His light.

    Blessings!
