Good evening everyone! I truly hope that you've had a nice Saturday! As for me...I did a little SEO work and then rested and spent time with my husband, which ended up being a nice day!
As I was preparing to write you this evening...I was thinking on this verse in Isaiah 60:20...and God was taking me back to a time, when I felt lost in a wilderness of deep despair. In my minds eye, it was as if I was standing in a dark and dingy place...with moss hanging from the trees. It seemed as though every time I attempted to walk out of this wilderness of despair; I just ended up...back to the place where I first began...that is, until God began to show me a way out. He reminded me that first...I was trying to walk out on my own...and that just wasn't going to work. Then He helped me to see that He was the light of this world...a light that could easily shine down on my path and lead me out of that wilderness of hurt and deep heartache.
As I took hold, to what He was showing me; I began to see that there was always a light shining down the pathway...whether He became the sun in my day...or the moonlight in my night...and as I continued to let the light of His presence lead me out...I began to once more see the light of day, as I walked out into a beautiful meadow of peace and the most awesome presence of God. Later, He took me to the top of a mountain and helped me to see, as to how far He had brought me.
No matter what you are facing...don't try to fumble alone, in the darkness of despair...because life will only get worse; but instead...look up, for the light of God's presence and let Him walk you out of despair...just as He did for me.
Maybe tonight, you are feeling as if the darkness is about to overtake you and defeat you. May I encourage you to look beyond the darkness, for the light of God's presence. One thing I know for sure...when we seek Him, with all our hearts...we do find Him; so seek, with all your heart. In fact...let the energy you put into finding your own way out of despair; be put into finding the presence of God...and I know in the end...there will be peace, in the midst of whatever you are walking through.
As this beautiful day comes to an end...I pray that God will come to you and illuminate the darkness that may be attempting to overtake you...and that you will rest...surrounded by angels of peace, until God brings you safely to another new dawn!
Many blessings on your night...Diane
