Sometimes, to meet with God, we have to go to the dark places. We have to enter the thick darkness of terrifying circumstances
And sometimes, it just seems that the darkness surrounds us. We didn’t choose it, we didn’t want it, we didn’t see it coming, but here we are, surrounded by the thick darkness of the unknown, the risky, the lonely.. And it feels like we went the wrong way. God isn’t in the darkness, is he? He dwells in the light - right?
God in the dark requires more trust than God in the light. When life gets dark and terrifying we have a choice: walk in the dark, trusting God - or don’t.
Sometimes the darkness isn’t punishment, or accident, or evil. Sometimes the dark is the gift. Sometimes the dark is the opportunity. God awaits us, not only in the light of easy times and happy moments, but also in the thick darkness. And there he invites us to learn to trust him like never before.
God in the dark requires far more trust than God in the light.
