Hey kids! Have you ever walked into a pitch black room and felt a little scared? What is the first thing you do? Turn the light on of course! Light makes everything clear again. And seeing clearly makes everything feel safe and secure. That is what God does for our hearts! His word says "Let him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God," (Isaiah 50:10b)
God wants us to know He is near when we feel afraid, even when life seems like a pitch black room and He may not seem near at all. He wants us to know His love for us is real even when we wonder if our faith is real.
