In Dark Times

In life, we often face dark times filled with fear and loneliness possibly to despair. Suffering through these times, whether from loss, defeat, failure, or any other event, we often feel overwhelmed, enveloped as it were by the darkest of night finding no light, not even a flicker of hope.  Fortunately, there is one for whom the darkness is no barrier. David knew both amazing success and the agony of extreme failure and loss. He endured the torrent of tears that loss releases and the anguish of a broken heart and wounded spirit. Yet, he wrote with the great assurance of experience that he was never alone! Though David could not see through the binding darkness, he discovered one with him able to see and to deliver as though standing in the light of the midday sun. No darkness defeats the True Light who holds you.
Trust not your own sight but the love of the one who holds you.
Psalms 139:12
“Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee (my God); but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.”
