Sometimes we over-complicate the equation. Could it perhaps be that simple? What might actually happen if we invited God into our places of darkness or disorientation? What if taking that vulnerable risk actually allows us to radiate with joy... to shine... to bear light. It seemed to be absolutely true for Mary. (see Luke 1)
May it be for us too.
In your own life - how do you look to the Lord for help?
