Lightens My Darkness

One day last week I was hit pretty hard.  I could feel the weight in my chest.  I pulled the Bible out on my desk and tried to read.  I read an entire chapter.  What did that say?  I paused and prayed.  Read it again.  Still not familiar.  I do not know what really happened after that until I got to Psalm 18:28.

For it is you who light my lamp; the LORD my God lightens my darkness.  –Psalm 18:28

I nearly busted into tears.  I kept reading to avoid the tears.  Life is so dark and here God is lighting the way.
