Recently I was reminded about a time when I was sitting with a lady in the hospital as she was struggling with the diagnosis that she was going to die soon, her disease was terminal. As we talked she said, “There is one thing I know as I enter this last leg of my journey, I am not traveling alone.”
We hear that promise throughout scripture, especially in Psalm 23, and we are reminded that as we journey into what may seem as the darkest parts of our lives, even as we journey to death, we are not alone. God has promised to light the way for us, and he sent his Son to show how death and darkness have no power over us.
This is the light of God, that his light is never extinguished, and our journeys will only bring us to a greater light, an eternal light, blessed with all the love that God can shower upon us.
