Sometimes seeing shadows can be scary. They can startle you, especially when you think you’re walking IMG_0384alone down a street.

Yet shadows can help us see where we may need work. The shadows can alert us to areas in ourselves that need some tender loving care.

How do you approach your own shadow? Do you try to run?

We all have shadows inside, but if we work through these with faith, we will find a light to lessen the shadows.

Do you have someone you look to in your life who provides a light to your shadow? Have a conversation with them this week, and see how you can be a light for them.
