"The Light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it." John 1:5 Love this verse! <3 The darkness will never overcome or put out God's light. Let your light shine. Light shines brightest in darkness....
yeah, after a hard, long day, it's what always jolts me: Grace isn’t a mere Pollyanna feeling. It’s a *force* -- powerful force. As startling as the power of electricity. Grace always shocks. Grace always stuns. And Grace is always what we need. It’s there for everyone groping around in the dark: *Turn toward Grace -- & you always turn on all the lights.*
Dear God, I need You to heal my heart, mind and soul and make me whole again… I have been feeling this heartache for so long and I need to move on with my life… Lord please comfort me and surround me with your peace and love… Amen ~Karen Kostyla
St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein) Through study of philosophy she grew into a woman of integrity and intelligence, following the truth wherever it led her. She came across the autobiography of St. Teresa of Avila, which she read all in one night, and upon finishing exclaimed, “This is the Truth!” This began a spiritual journey that led to her to being baptized Catholic. She later became a Carmelite nun.
