On the way to see my parents yesterday, I could not help
but notice how dark the sky was.
These pictures do not even come close to what I saw.
There was such a thick darkness, and it seemed to be everywhere.
it can seem in this life sometimes.
I saw the clouds as evil, covering this earth, and
how sometimes we cannot see past it.
The darkness seems to overcome us.
I thought of the word "despair".
How sometimes we despair in the darkness of this world,
and life's circumstances.
How there seems to be no hope in things to come.
Then I noticed the light.
It seemed very far away, but it was there!
And the more I looked, the more light I saw.
I had to look past the overwhelming darkness,
and keep my eyes on the light.
Jesus is the light of the world.
He has overcome the darkness and despair of this world.
Christ gives us the strength to overcome.
" ...in all these things we are more than conquerors
through Christ who strengthens us."
Blessings as you reach for His light.
