Our parents left the light on.Mom and Dad slept on the first floor of our 4 bedroom house; our bedrooms were upstairs. We had a ceiling light just outside our rooms; at the top of the stairs. During the night, Mom and Dad kept it burning.I don’t remember being very afraid of the dark as a child. Yet; I prefer lighted spaces.“The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the defense of my life; Whom shall I dread (Psalm 27:1 NASB)?”The LORD’s light never goes out. He is my light.“Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life (John 8:12 NASB).”The heavenly Father has delivered me from darkness.“For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son (Colossians 1:13 NASB).” I have no cause to fear the darkness. God lights my path.“Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path (Psalm 119:105 NASB).”He leaves the light on!
