READ: God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 1 John 1:5

REFLECT: Whenever I take up a task that is going to require my best effort for success, I remember a story about the famous lace shops in Bruges, Belgium.

Certain rooms are reserved for making the finest, most delicate designs. Each room is dark except for a beam of light from a tiny overhead window that falls directly onto the pattern of lace being spun.

The choicest lace is wrought when the worker himself is in the dark and only his pattern is in the light.

Being merely human, I often struggle in confusion when I try to accomplish difficult tasks by myself. But if I expose them to God’s power by asking His help and blessing every step of the way, success often comes.

Perhaps I’m a little like those lace-spinners in Bruges—spinning in darkness, but capable of my best work in the radiance of God’s perfect light.

PRAY: Lord, allow me to see darkness as the good thing it can be. Let me stay in the darkness if it means a more beautiful result for Your glory.

DO: Think of some other beautiful things accomplished in the dark: a seed in the ground, a baby in the womb, the Cross.
