A Candle Shining in a Very Dark Place

You may walk down the halls at your school and feel like you are all alone. You may sit in class and feel like you stick out like a sore thumb. You may think that some days you are fighting a battle that is all uphill. You may feel such peer pressure all around you despite knowing the God inside of you is real. You may be made fun of because of the clothes that you wear. You may be constantly told by your classmates that you need to cut your hair. But don’t forget in these moments that though you may not see Him, God is by your side. He is always there to give you strength and has His arms stretched open wide. Greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world! Just remember God knew what He was doing when He made you a girl! You are a candle shining bright in a very dark place. You are the hope and have the answer for every lost face. Your long un-cut hair is reflecting His glory Your make-up less face is a witness to His grace and redemption story. Your skirt past your knees and modest dress. Tells the world of a Holy God’s unfailing goodness. And then one day when you hear Him say “thou good and faithful servant” You will know that it will all be worth it. And beside you will be the ones that saw His light shining through you. And for eternity you will thankful that you stood your ground even when you felt like you didnt know what to do. The wonder of heaven and the joy of seeing His face. Will make you so glad that you were a candle shining in a very dark place. Written By Lorraine M Orozco
