My eyes are very sensitive to light especially when I’m trying to sleep, so a few months ago I bought some blackout curtains. They are absolutely wonderful! However, I realized that when the sun came up, the Light always found its Way into the darkness. My bedroom was no longer pitch dark … into the smallest crevices, the light had come through. For some of us, our lives seem to be in total darkness right now and for others, we encounter those moments of darkness when our situation seems hopeless. But always remember…
6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;2 Corinthians 4:6-9 KJV
We are in a season of grief and loss, like we’ve never seen before… “God, it’s so overwhelming! Sometimes I feel that I just can’t catch my breath. We need to see Your Light. It feels so dark right now. But as I lay in my bed in the early morning, I see Your light piercing through what was once a room that was pitch dark. Help us to see Your Light, the Light of Your Glory. You are the only one that can strengthen us, that can hold us up, even in the darkest places. ”
We must let His Word Order Our Steps…
