You are my light, O Lord!
Often, we are so blindsided by these expected events that we initially feel disappointed and discouraged. Then something amazing happens. We find our strength, our courage, we find ourselves.
“You divided the sea before them, so that they passed through it on dry ground, but you hurled their pursuers into the depths, like a stone into mighty waters. By day you led them with a pillar of cloud, and by night with a pillar of fire to give them light on the way they were to take” (Nehemiah 9:11-13)
