The people which sat in darkness saw great Light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death Light IS sprung up. 
~ Matthew 4:16

This verse gives me much hope, as I am seeing death all around me. There are major earthquakes, famines, tainted waters, diseases, murderers, hate-filled words pouring out of everyone near and far. God IS faithful. His Word tells us that He IS coming to bring judgment upon the earth, and to avenge His people. I believe in the Holy Name of Jesus, my Lord, my King, my Savior, my God! and because of this, I am eternally saved! Thank You, Jesus !!! His Light IS a beacon unto my soul and I am given hope. 

Thus saith God the LORD, He that created the heavens, and stretched them out; He that spread forth earth, and that which cometh out of it; He that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and Will hold thine hand, and Will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the gentiles;
To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. 
~ Isaiah 42:5-7

God has a plan that IS perfect, and His Will IS coming to pass! Those of us who belong to His Son, Jesus Christ will see His glory shining through the darkness, and become witnesses to His victory! Hold on to that hope ~ especially in these times that are so hard. Ask Him, and He Will increase our faith! Thank You, Jesus, Amen.
