A Hope-Filled Relationship


If we focus on Jesus during our "dark times," we will have hope during those times.


Thank God for the hope He gives you every day. Ask Him to help you see that as your relationship with Him grows, so does your hope.


Gather in a room that has little natural light. Although it is not necessary that the room be completely dark, prepare the room for this activity by turning off all lamps and main light sources. Have one family member stand in the middle of the room with his eyes closed—no peeking! Gently spin him around and then have another family member turn on the brightest lamp in the room. The "blind" person's challenge is to find his way to the light without opening his eyes.


In the Bible, Jesus calls himself "the light of the world" (John 8:12). Although we cannot see Jesus with our eyes, we can better recognize His light by learning His Word and knowing His character. Disappointments at school or struggles at home can be hard to endure. Even if we don't understand why God is allowing us to struggle with something, Jesus proves through His faithfulness that He is deserving of our hope. If we focus on Jesus during our "dark times," we can have hope.
