In the morning, while it was still very dark, Jesus got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed. Mark 1:35
While it was still very dark
Lord your words today jump from the pages right into my heart.
Jesus didn’t wait until He could clearly see to seek You.
Jesus didn’t begged for sunlight before enjoying Your presence.
He got up while it was still dark to find You.
I want to be like that.
When burdened with dark moods and deep disappointments, I want to get up with Jesus and pray.
When shadows dim my vision, I will join Jesus in a quiet place and spend time with You.
Trusting in You, I will step out into the unknown, praying and glorifying You even if I have no idea what lies ahead.
I may start in darkness but the candlelight of prayer lights my path.
The time may be filled with darkness, but Your presence lights my way.
