Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Friday to you all! I am so glad that you stopped by for a visit today! As we begin our time together, I pray that we will truly come to see; that with every dark night of despair…comes a new dawn…Amen!!
Last night was another rough night for me…and as I sat in the darkness alone…I was reminded, as to how a circumstance can truly seem like a long and lonely night within itself. These moments of deep despair can make us feel isolated within the sad and darkened moments that attempt to remove us from God and life itself.
As I sat on my daybed in the office…to think on this even more; God began to remind me that with every night time we experience…comes a new dawn…a time when renewal takes place, while experiencing a fresh new start.
As I’ve been sitting here this morning…thinking on all that God has placed upon my heart; He began to lead me to a Bible verse in Psalm 30:5b, which reads… “Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.”
While thinking on these words that I had just read to myself; God began to show me how far He had brought me since last night. Here at one time…I was sitting in darkness…feeling rough and weak, from the pain that I had experience the day before…to now sit here and write about this experience.
Today, I have been reminded that even though Satan may encircle us within a dark moment...that can seem to have no end; there is a presence that can step into these dark moments and bring about a new dawn…one that replaces sadness and despair, with joy and renewed hope.
More and more, I am coming to see that even though life may crumble down around us and place us in a darkened moment of despair; we cannot be moved or led to a place of total darkness; for the light that shines from this powerful God; shines brighter than the darkness itself.
Maybe you too, have been experiencing a circumstance that has made you feel as though it’s been a long and lonely night with no end. May I encourage you today…to not give into the darkness that surrounds you; but instead…call out to the One, whose light can dispel darkness and bring about a new dawn. One thing I can definitely say from what I experienced last night; is that even though weeping may endure for the night; joy does come in the morning…Amen!
Have a very blessed day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
