RCL Daily Devotion for Wednesday, January 16, 2019
RCL Daily Devotions written by Rev. Stefanie K. Fauth from RCL Worship Resources (see more).
Sometimes the thought of being light for others to find the way to Christ is a beautiful thing.
Other times, it’s downright scary and filled with pressure.
If a part of you is feeling darkness, you can’t be the light - which feels true.
But for those who struggle with depression or other mental health issues, it can feel like a shameful reminder that our brains don’t always cooperate with us and our desire to share love and light.
Instead of finding shame in this, know that if you are feeling darkness, you don’t have to fake light. That is the time to care for yourself and do what needs to be done to bring you to a place where you can shine once more.
And never fear, the light of Christ will shine brightly enough that there will never be total darkness - no matter how much you are struggling.
