The Light Still Shines
It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless.
There's more to us than our negative thoughts, our worries, fears, and even our sadness. It's a distinction that we need to make if we are going to move beyond all of it to something else.
You can be sad. You might even be anxious or depressed. But that doesn't define you. You are more than your sadness... your anxiety... your depression. You are so much more.
So today I am going to hold on to something that has been running through my head louder than those destructive whispers---a verse from the preamble to the Gospel of John.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
