Darkness (noun) a place of little or no light.
It sneaks in and robs us blind. It binds our steps. It threatens to swallow us whole. It robes itself in depression, illness, broken relationships, financial distress, anxiety, death…
It can shatter our faith. Make us question the fact that we ever believed. That God truly is with us. And loves us. And is for us. Its goal… to drag us to desperation. To the place called midnight.
Midnight (noun) period of intense darkness.
Our deepest darkest hour. We teeter here. Walking the line. Faith faltering. Grasping. White knuckled. We question where is God? Has He left me? The darkness engulfing. Wanting us to believe we are alone.
But God is calling. You can hear His whisper, “Right here. I am right here.”
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
