Psalm 71:20 NIV
 Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.
Psalm 56:13 NIV
 For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.
God cares about life! As we look forward through Advent to the coming of the “Light of Life” take heart that God knows our darkest moments and will restore us, bring us up again and deliver us from death so that we walk in his light – forever!
Lord, help me to know your power at work in my life today – that power that raised Jesus from the dead to give us hope and deliverance.
