    To the upright there shines light in the darkness. The blessing of living a righteous life is that Jehovah God shall make your pathway bright. Even in adversity He will make a way when there seems to be no way. The path of the righteous shines brighter unto that perfect day when we shall see Jesus as He is in perfect Holiness.
