devaneyann It's amazing how many questions a single daily devotional can answer. A concept that seems so simple to comprehend is usually the most difficult to put into action.

Today's study touched on Matthew 4:16: "The people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light. Those dwelling in the region, and shadow of death, on them a light has dawned." Ecclesiastes states "what has been, will be again; what has been done, will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun." Today's society is running rampant in sin + destruction. Heartbreaking? Absolutely. New news? Hardly. What's to be done about it, however? Strengthen gun laws, increase police protection, racially separate ourselves from one another until we become one nation under our own color? I don't think that's the answer. We aren't called to fight fire with fire. 'Revenge + retaliation' is exactly what our mindset has become. For Christians, it's hard to fight for what we know to be true without undergoing our own barrage of attacks from which we've begun to back down. NO. That shouldn't soften us; that should make us stronger. That's Satan's way of trying to extradite God's name out of daily conversation. We ought to speak His name proudly. Am I guilty of "minding my own business" + not speaking up against things I know to be against what God has called of me? Uh .. Daily. Perfection is not in my vocabulary wheelhouse. I write this in hopes of someone else hearing His word today. Christ didn't spread the word of God in familiar territory .. He entered 'the region and shadows of death;' Capernaum. This was a despised region of sin + despair. He went into the darkness so those who were lost could see the light.

I encourage you to take action; in the very least, attempt to absorb what this may mean. How does it apply in your own life? "Shine a bright light into an already lighted room, and you've changed nothing. Shine that same light into a dark corner, and you've shattered the darkness. Capernaum may be as near as your neighborhood, school, or office. Where the light of the gospel needs to penetrate, there is your Capernaum." ️🏻 #Godsword #faith #standup #takeaction #dailydevotional #shopbando

devaneyann Ignore the no makeup and the circles under my eyes .. I've had a long few days buuuut this just happened and I'm dying. She's dead asleep and I guess decided to see what my bottom teeth felt like. More fingers were involved but I was too busy laughing to get a picture before her hand slid down. This girl sure knows how to perk up my day. #GentriRose #silly #newborn #nomakeup #freeentertainment 14h

devaneyann She takes comfort in touch. Falling asleep was such a struggle for her tired + heavy eyes until she grabbed ahold of my thumb. It was "lights out" from there! #GentriRose #sweetdreams 4d
