Isaiah 60:2-3 -- On Brightness

"For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising."
Isaiah 60:2-3

This is talking about the last days and how the Lord's brightness will chase away the darkness.  I love that idea, of brightness overcoming darkness, and everyone gathering to the light.

I think that this applies to our lives now as well.  Sometimes we feel surrounded by darkness and "gross darkness" seems to be covering us as well, but if we go to God with our problems, his brightness will not only shine through so that we can find our way to him, but while we're talking to God, he will destroy the darkness "with the brightness of his coming" (2 Thessalonians 2:8).  As the darkness lifts, our minds will clear, we will have a chance to breathe, to repent, and to hopefully continue to infuse our lives with more light--growing "brighter and brighter until the perfect day" (D&C 50:24).

Today, let's move towards God's light, and pray for his brightness in our lives.
