Dark

When the lights fade to darkness…
When all the white is black…
When hopes are found not boundless…
And all your dreams fall flat…

When the sun falls into the west…
When the day turns into the night…
When every good thing is less…
And your will is losing might…

When the waters dry up in drought…
When the flood water comes by surprise…
When pain surpasses every mount’…
And in the deepest pit you die…

When despair is found all around…
When there seems no end in sight…
Even in the darkest shrouds,
There is still faith in Jesus Christ.

A quick note for the reader here! I’m a Christian. There have been times in my life (and no doubt will be again) when I feel worthless, low, and in pain so great I don’t think I can bear it… But I make it through! How? By looking the only direction I can in a pit of misery, up. The Holy Spirit lives in me and works in my life. The light that is in me is a light that no amount of darkness can ever overcome. Darkness will never overcome light because darkness is the absence of light. There will always be light, and the darkness will always flee from it. My light will never be completely extinguished, no matter how much pain, misery, and darkness surrounds me. I am a light to others. Even if I’m not very bright (pun intended), I may still help others see where they’re going. I try to shed light on their path and help them find their way.

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:5 (KJV)
