The darkness shrouds me once again. The all-too-familiar squeezing of the chest and gnawing at my stomach have made their presence known again. And I cry out to God in my pain. How long, Oh Lord? Will the guilt always been a mantel that I wear? Will I ever find beauty for ashes? I'm holding on by only a thread as the second day draws to a midnight close.
I know there is only peace in You but I can't find You for the dark night that lingers into day. You say that even in the darkness, You will find your children. I'm waiting for You to take hold of me, Oh Lord.
If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
Psalm 139: 11,12
In His light , we see light.
