We live in a period where we are surrounded by darkness and yet, in the darkness the Light seems to burn so much brighter.  I believe at this time many are increasingly drawn to the Light

You cannot switch on a TV or radio without the word coronavirus leaping out at you, I so often switch on the radio and then switch it straight off again
dove leftThe coronavirus is so called because it resembles a crown (corona is crown in Latin).  A crown is a symbol of power and authority.  This virus has had colossal power over the nations and has brought darkness into many peoples’ lives despite being invisible to the naked eye.  Just think about what it has forced millions, if not billions, of us to do and not do
One thing it has done is remind us of our mortality, it has made people feel vulnerable.  Recently I had an email from someone seeking help and she said that she was lonely, scared, alone, and empty
There is so much fear at the moment, and yet, there is another Crown
Dove rightA crown of thorns was forced on to the head of Jesus just before His execution, this is where real Power and Authority dwell
Jesus once said, “I am the light of the world, whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life
It is in His death and resurrection where we find the light; the hope; the peace, and the Love that He promised
John tells us that “God is Light; in him there is no darkness at all
Follow the true crown who is Jesus Christ and you will never be alone and if you continue to follow Him you will learn to trust Him in all situations, whatever they are
 John 10:10 TPT
But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect—life in its fullness until you overflow!
