“Darkness is light to you and all you ask me to do is trust what you say is true.” – JJ Heller
I was afraid of the darkness until I lived it for a while and then I realized it was there to point me to the Light. The Light was my journey back.
Our God “wears the scars of the singe.” – in the words of Ann Voskamp. This is “A God who bares His scars and reaches through the fire to grab us.”
And she says that no one told her. That you could get strong again when you “set the words free…just let the Word, all words, free you.”
No matter what you’re going through or have gone through, there is power in the letting. In the setting words free. In naming in the light what was lived in the darkness.
And yes, praise God, He is our Light.
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7)
“Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.” (Hebrews 7:25)
He saves to the uttermost. Those who draw near to God through him.
He lives and intercedes for us.
