Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
I have always loved the image of Jesus as the light in the darkness. I did not know what verse it came from before though. This is how I have always pictured him, as a light in the darkest of times. A hand when I'm alone, and so much more. I have struggled to explain to friends who don't share the faith how Jesus is helping me when all they see is the trials I'm facing. I've never known how to explain that he hasn't abandoned me. This verse is one I need to memorize for such hard times. God doesn't stop bad things from always happening but he makes certain you aren't alone for them.
