Brainerd: in the midst of darkness

Thursday, December 27, 2018
    Feast of John, Apostle & Evangelist
Even though I walk
    through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.
    —Psalm 23:4 (NIV)
    It is good to follow the path of duty, though in the midst of darkness and discouragement.
    ... David Brainerd (1718-1747), Memoirs of the Rev. David Brainerd, New Haven: S. Converse, 1822, p. 246 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 23:4; 119:105; Isa. 42:6-7; 60:1-3; Matt. 4:13-16; Luke 1:76-79
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep my eyes looking at You.
