In the darkness, I wonder, is there hope, is there joy, is the light? For there are times when I cannot see my way out, of this abyss; yet my heart cries out, “Save me, please. I don’t want to live in the darkness that seems to envelop me and keep me from rising up and moving out and forward in my life. I can’t do it on my own. Is there anyone out there?
And then in the stillness of my heart, I hear a voice, gentle, tender, merciful, loving… calling me, to come into the light. And so I look up from the darkness and I see, a glimmer of light, a glimmer of hope… and as I continue to look at it, it begins to get brighter, larger; reaching toward me. I reach out, hoping that the light will wrap itself around me and take me out of this darkness, this dreary disposition. And then I sense a warmth I have never known before, wrapping itself around me like a Father gathering a child into His arms, holding me, keeping me safe… and He takes me out of this darkness into a marvelous light… A light that is hope, faith and love all in One… because I realize the One who is holding me… is the True Light. The One and Only Light that can and has saved me from the darkness.
