These are indeed dark times; our world is under great siege on every side with sickness, death, and emotional and financial difficulties. It is very hard to imagine the possible prolonged amount of time it may take for our economy’s recovery. As we watch we will see love is on all sides speaking in our gloom just as Jesus expresses His love and provision for each one of us in our spiritual blackness.
Love Spoke into My Darkness
When young I remember marveling over the beauty of the butterfly.
It was so pretty watching how it would rise up to the sky.
I didn’t know about God…my eyes were blind;
But He left little treasures like this for me to find.
Little by little I began to wonder about things unclear,
As my seeking heart was prepared; God drew near.
It is strange now when looking back,
I didn’t have any idea of my darkness; but God knew where I was at.
He kept me pretty busy searching for what I did now know,
And then one day He revealed the darkness of my soul.
At the revelation my life was rearranged.
When I saw His great gift of salvation my life was forever changed.
He has never stopped giving me His gifts along the way.
He still speaks into my heart and His Word lights the way.
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament
sheweth his handywork.
