Advent: A time to reflect on darkness and light.
Hope yet shines through the despair.
Jesus Christ, fully God, yet fully man, comes to Earth, clothed as a baby.
So much mystery and contradiction.
The Messiah, the chosen 1,
Born of a virgin in a lowly stable
Yet the Saviour of the world.
I love to light our Advent candle, remembering the truth that the light shines in the darkness but the darkness has not overcome it.
So for me, it resonates with the truth that whilst I may be battling depression, the Light of the World is my Living Hope. I will not be afraid. The Light has overcome the darkness. VICTORY ETERNAL- no more suffering, no more tears. Jesus wipes them away and holds me and says “It will all be ok. This pain will end.
Joy, the antidote to fear is brightening my world.
