  1. Jesus is right here with me on this earth in the midst of all that is wrong. He is our creator and He knows ALL things thus I can rest and marvel at Him in spite of difficulties and seemingly unfairness. We as Christians are blessed beyond comprehension. Let’s praise Him right here, right now! He loves little ole me!

    • Cathy, I just got home from a 12 hour work day as a home care nurse. I am so frustrated about my job, the other nurses and the poor state of health care today. Your comment really made that verse come alive for me and I appreciate it so very, very much. Like, I just took a deep breathe, probably first one today. The tension eased out of my shoulders. Cuz God is there for me. That is so easy to forget on hectic days when nothing seems to go right at work or home. Thank you again!!

  2. Thank God for his light , life and love in us thru the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ that we may be a light to others in the dark time.

  3. I WANT YOU TO KNOW MY JESUS, I WANT YOU TO KNOW MY LORD,
    I WANT YOU TO KNOW MY SAVIOR, WHO CAME – THE LI – VING WORD

    JESUS CAME – AS PROPHETS SAID HE WOULD,

    WRITTEN DOWN, FULFILLING EVERY WORD,

    HEALED AND OPENED EYES AND GAVE NEW LIFE,

    GOD IN FLESH, REDEEMING SACRIFICE
    I WANT YOU TO KNOW MY JESUS, I WANT YOU TO KNOW MY LORD,

    I WANT YOU TO KNOW MY SAVIOR, GOD GAVE – THE LI – VING WORD

    May The Lord lead in the blessing of this gospel chorus/hymn….

  4. Praise the Lord for the light. I am so happy that we serve a Lord that we do not have to live in darkness.

  5. I sometimes love darkness. When showering I light a candle and use that time as prayer & worship with my Lord & Jesus. It is my quiet time to Praise the creator of light and everything and to present my requests.

    God is everywhere all the time and His light never dies out. It shines brighter and brighter each day! Love the scripture!!

    God bless everyone this advent season!

  6. How comforting to know God will never leave nor forsake us. He’s always with us and asks us to do as Brother Lawrence admonishes in his book titled, “Practicing the Presence of God.” He brings us light which is truth and illumines the path ahead. Beautiful thoughts from this Scripture.

  7. Can someone help me understand this verse please? “the Word was with God, and the Word was God”? So is John talking about an addition to Father, Son and Holy Spirit?

  8. Good morning Donna. I believe the Word is Jesus. You can substitute by saying “Jesus was with God and Jesus IS God.”
