Scripture: Psalm 23; Ephesians 5:8-14
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff – they comfort me. (Psalm 23:4)
By the second half of life, we learn to positively ignore and withdraw our energy from evil or stupid things rather than fight them directly, or dwell on them incessantly. We get in contact with our shadow self, understand our darkest valleys, and trust that God will see us through. We let go of our false personas, and let ourselves be who we truly are. Our cups learn to overflow with goodness and love.
