… for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of the light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore, it says, “Awake oh sleeper, and rise from the dead, and Christ will shine in you.” -Ephesians 5:8-14
You, Lord, have pulled me from darkness into light. May I remain in the glory of Your will, not seeking those things which would lead me astray, but instead contemplating and pursuing the truths of Your Word and Your Light. You are the Way, the Truth, and the Light—thank You for calling me to Your beauty.
