RECAP
When things happen that we would never choose, God is able to do things we could never imagine.
AFRAID OF THE DARK
Not only children battle with the fear of the dark.

Darkness is a metaphor for the unknown.

Darkness can’t DO anything except veil or hide what is there.
UNKNOWN WHAT AND WHY
What are you worried about? Why are you worried?

“I don’t know.” “I’m not sure.”

Let’s start here: You cannot be worried about EVERY POSSIBLE thing that could happen!

When really BIG things happen in life, really hurtful things – WHY? becomes very important to us.
NO DARKNESS
If we had a choice, we would want “no darkness”!

Allowing the darkness to paralyse, demoralize, consume, control – as if it‘s the ONLY thing - that’s a problem!
THE LIGHT WITHIN
God’s Light is real. No maybe’s, no doubts, no unknowns.

He has revealed Himself.

Every person who has accepted that Light, Christ Jesus, has the Light of the world in them.

The first place it’s going to shine – into YOUR darkness. It will reveal the hidden things IN YOU.

LET IT SHINE!
SHINE DON'T HIDE
How bright are you allowing the Light to shine?

Well, how RIGHTEOUSLY are you living?

Fear God more than anything else. Above ALL, and EVERYONE, no matter what, WANT to please Him.

Do what is right. NO matter what.

-Protect your inputs, think on these things (Philippians 4:8-9).
