Advent 1 – Friday

The LORD is my light and my salvation;
whom should I fear?

Psalm 27:1

When I was a youngster Mom would leave a light on in my bedroom some nights after I woke up having had a nightmare.  In my fear, I found comfort in the light because I could see that there weren’t any bogeymen in my room.  I was able to go back to sleep with a sense of security.

I think Jesus is that way for me today.  I still have nightmares once in awhile and when I awake I turn to my Light and my Salvation.  Somehow, I find a comfort in knowing that he’s there, still protecting me.

How about you?  How is the LORD your Light and your Salvation?
