Hope when the lights are going out

The light shines in the darkness and the darkness can never extinguish it. Jn. 1:5

Even though we walk this earth with His light within us, we face darkness from time to time…and sometimes it’s really long and dark. Corrie Ten Boom wrote that “there is no pit so deep that the love of God is not deeper still.” J.R.R. Tolkien wrote of a “light in dark places when all other lights have gone out.” At the bottom of every seemingly bottomless black hole the bright love of Jesus stretches out for us like a net to bounce us back into His light.

Thank you for being there for me.
