While others are ending their day to rest, I am sitting not only in the darkness of my office; but I am also sitting in the darkness of a circumstance that seems to have no end. Some may say that it’s due to a lack of faith; but I have seen it many times, as an old chapter in my life that’s about to close, while God is about to open up something new before my very eyes.
For several days now, I have been walking down a broken road that seems to reveal nothing before me. Moments like these can make a person feel lost and alone. Oh how I long for that special touch of something new; that I have experienced so many times in the past.
As I came on here tonight…typing with one hand, while the other one continues to heal; I’ve been thinking on how there are times, when we simply have to let go of the lost and unknown moments of despair, to just simply trust God. You know...it’s not always easy to trust in what God may be up to…especially when all we seem to see before us is darkness; but one thing God was reminding me of tonight; is that when we make Him the light of our life…especially during these difficult times; then there are no dark and unknown moments ahead…for the light of His presence illuminates darkness and gives us a light of hope to hold to, until He walks us directly into the answers to life’s questions.
Right now I am looking out into the darkness of another night. Even though that darkness appears to have no end…a time will come, when the darkness will give way to another new dawn…a time when life will begin again, with new possibilities and a fresh new start…and the discouraging feelings that once weighed us down, will also give way to new thoughts; that just may move us one step closer, to what God has been longing to show us through these difficult times.
You know…we may struggle for the answers we so desperately need right now; but if we could just take life one step at a time and allow God’s footprints to walk us through the unknown moments that stand before us; then I think that we would truly come to experience that new dawn…one that God has been planning for us all along.
“Because of God’s tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, 79) to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace.” Luke 1:78-79
Many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him
