"There is strong shadow where there is much light."
The days are getting longer and the sun is starting to shine a little more often. Shadows are getting stronger. Spring is here!
In a similar way, when things are going well for us, the "strong shadow" comes out of the light to stop us in our tracks, humble us, and put us back in our place. When the good times roll, the light lengthens; when the Prince of Darkness appears, the shadow strengthens. The two go hand-in-hand.
O God, lengthen my light and guide me when the shadows strengthen beside me. Amen.
