Can you share a favorite quote or something that inspires you?
I am a part of the campus ministry Chi Alpha and this year has been about breaking the darkness on campus with God's love. So the verse I am sharing is Isaiah 60:1-3 “Arise and shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, BUT the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn”. To me this verse is a great reminder that God will forever be on his thrown and we will always be in his light.
