Growing In Christ

Day 2: Misunderstood

Read: Start by reading John 1:5 out loud a few times. 

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:5 NIV).

Meditate: Why is it that darkness does not overcome or understand the light?

As a Christian woman, you can think of the very presence of Jesus as a light shining in you. Imagine His light shining through you in this hurting world that does not understand the light. Read John 1:5 again with that thought in mind.

Day 1: Light of the World

Read: Start by reading John 1:1–4 out loud a few times. 

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind” (John 1:1–4 NIV).

Meditate: What words are especially meaningful to you today?

Did God really make us on purpose and for a purpose?

Did Someone Steal the Dove of Peace?

I had been thinking about the lack of peace in our world this year, and then a feeling of peace overwhelmed my thoughts as I walked through the snow on Friday. We were surprised by what some called a perfect snow. It fell thick on the ground but not on the roads, and we enjoyed watching the soft flakes fall all day. 


Sometimes we wonder where peace can be found when we look at our world.
