The loud sound of thunder woke Maria up in the middle of the night.She hugged her teddy so tight for some comfort.It didn’t help she  was still very scared.The heavy rain hiting the roof,the very dark room,the silence in the big house.She was so gripped with fear that she could hardly move.

Maria had also been very Courageous.Her dad had even told her that she was too courageous for a seven year old.But on this rainy night,Maria didn’t feel so brave.She was frightened by everything going on outside.

‘If I can only walk to the switch and turn on the light.I just need some light in this room.’ She thought to herself.

The thought of walking to the switch alone scared her.Maybe covering her head with her blankie will help.It didn’t.How about closing her eyes so tight.It didn’t,the room was so dark.

Sometimes,we have some dark moments in our lives that frightens us.But like Maria,we need the courage to walk through the dark to get to the switch and turn the light on.

No matter how dark your room is right now..Turn on the light! Open your bible.Its has enough light for your disappiontment,your confusion and any situation you can ever been in.
