What is that light? [ Psalm 23]

The days during this time of the year are dark and dreary,the trees are naked
and bare,such are the seasons.Our life is like the seasons,and while we may fly of to sun drenched places,the seasons we experience in our lives can not
be avoided.I know some Christians who are going through seasons of pain,
cancer is ravaging,their bodies,and death looms up.This applies to everyone
no amount of money,no position of power can change this,it is part of the human experience.These seasons of pain are reminders of the extent of sin
on this world.I am convinced that most people even many Christian,fail to appreciate the truly awfulness of sin.Jesus knew,he knew that the only answer,to mankind's awful condition ,was the awfulness of His death on a cross. From the awful darkness of Calvary,light eternal shone forth,hope came,that light would lighten our darkness.The dreary dark seasons of our lives,could be transformed,my son Brian,speaking on the 23rd Psalm v3,as regards walking through the valley of the shadow of death,said where there is a shadow there must be light.What is that light?,well David says,I will
fear no evil for you are with me.The you, is none other than Jesus who is the light of the world,who says to all who trust Him ,I am with you always.
                                Standing somewhere in the shadows you'll
                                find Jesus.
                                He's the only one who cares and understands,
                                Standing somewhere in the shadows you'll
                                find Jesus.
                                And you'll know Him by the nail prints in His
