Kate said DARKNESS
It’s a coincidence that Kate said darkness for the FMF word prompt. This past week on the main page of my blog I wrote about LIGHT!
Several years ago I created a brochure on the darkness – it was a helpful exercise in writing because of a very dark season our family walked through. It was five years of hell actually. But, it turned out well and God redeemed every mega second of those dark years. He restored what the locust had attempted to eradicate for good.
So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten…Joel 2.25
That season is an anchor point for me – like a stone of remembrance. When I “feel” like God is light-years away, I remember and I rejoice. It gives me great hope and it restores my soul.
If you find yourself in a dark place, I highly recommend asking Father to bring to your remembrance a time He went above and beyond any expectation you had – when He showed up and showed off!
He will do it again. He doesn’t allow His kids to linger in darkness very long – He will present a choice to you, especially if your darkness is self-imposed. I know this because He worked this way in me. Read my post on “Light” and be encouraged.
‘Tis the season of LIGHT – be encouraged today by my words and my testimony, the darkness does not have to last because if you belong to the Father of Lights, one turn and you are in His sphere of Light!
If you would like the Dark:30 brochure, send me an email with your mailing address and I’ll share!
