lightAndDarknessToday’s Scripture

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me,” (Psalm 23:4).

Daily Lent Reflection

Light and darkness are powerful images that occur often in the Bible, and are present in each human life. Darkness is often associated with evil, with fear, with death, or with despair. Here, the Psalmist expresses an absolute trust. Having God as my Shepherd does not remove the darkness, but I know that ultimately I am safe.

Daily Lent Challenge

Today I will ask myself what the areas of internal or external darkness are in my life? What am I afraid of? Where is God in these areas?
