God’s Light

Tonight I have the devotions for my church’s Circle meeting. I thought I would share it to remind you that God is always with you.

The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever. Psalm 121:8 NLT

A mother and her four-year-old daughter were preparing for bed one night. The child was afraid of the dark, and the mother, on this occasion, felt fearful also.

When the light was out, the child caught a glimpse of the moon outside the window. “Mother,” she asked, “is the moon God’s light?” “Yes,” said the mother.

The next question was, “Will God put out his light and go to sleep?” The mother replied, “No, my child, God never goes to sleep.”

Then out of the simplicity of a child’s faith, she said these words which gave reassurance to the fearful mother: “Well, as long as God’s light in on, he’s awake, and we might as well go to sleep.”

I would rather walk with God in the dark than go alone in the light. Mary Gardiner Brainard
