Light of Hope Keeps Shining for Man


The shadows of time stretch along the path of life that each person walks during their journey with time. Some make lasting impressions and others, although their foot prints are faded, still give evidence they were here on earth and walked, lived and passed through the shadows of time. Everyone’s journey on the path of life is governed by time and each person’s journey varies with different conditions and struggles. In the shadows of time hide the evil tempters of life that cause some to wonder away from their ever lighted journey in time.

Each and every person who lives in this world faces different temptations, trials and tribulations that may change their intended course from light into a dark, lonely, and unknown path. We must never lose hope and realize we have the ability to traverse any trail or path we walk if we never lose hope. Never trade hope for despair, when hope is gone fear conquers. Fear closes the door of hope and fills the lighted path with darkness.

The light of hope keeps shining for man that they may again find the light and return to their original journey and return from whence they came, and find happiness and joy.

Darkness gives evils permission to work their dirty deeds and stir calm into fear. Never forget to pray for hope and faith when the tempter comes near and the shadow of fear spreads across your journey. Stop and realize your position, your desire and your need for guidance and never let darkness engulf your vision. Awake and cry for help from on high and plead for the light of hope to shine again. “Ask and it shall be given you knock and it shall be opened unto you. Seek and you shall find.”
