I came across this quotation attributed to HK Barclay in the January 15, 2008 reflection in the daily devotional Living Water: “When walking through the ‘valley of shadows,’ remember, a shadow is cast by Light.” This is a comforting thought to remember when we go through some circumstances or situations which my not be entirely pleasant.
How is a shadow produced? A shadow is a dark figure that is created when light is intercepted by another body. So, a shadow is cast when Light hits something big…really BIG? But can anything else be bigger than God?
So whatever your situation in life — particularly when all seems dark and dreary — just remember that there is a Source of Light nearby. What may be blocking the Light can be big but no one can be bigger than our God and the shadows won’t be there for long. Have a great day everybody. God bless.
