?LIGHT OF THE WORLD?
”Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

”Let your spirit pour out and cover the earth
Pour your spirit over the dry places,
The dark places,
The empty and longing hearts,
The hungry and thirsty hearts…”
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified
”Day in and day out
You lead me,
you sustain me
Day in and day out
You love me
you hear me,
you see me
Day in, day out
You are the One who uphold me”
”For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.
You have hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it.”
Psalms 139: 4-6
”For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jer. 29:11
