Sometimes being guided by a hand in the dark is better than taking a lamp from the devious
We always want God to be a brilliant white light
But not always
Sometimes God comes to us
In the dark places
Comes and comforts us, let’s us know we’re not lost
Sometimes the light is tempting
But in truth, it’s a fire
It lets us stride forward
It gives us strength
but eventually Depravity
…and by the time we realize the path we’ve chosen and try to turn back
We find the trail we’ve left smoldering in ash
Instead of ash, let’s embrace the hand in the dark.
The leap of faith.
We don’t see by the light of a flame
We simply trust that the hand that’s guiding us is true
That it will help us walk safely & pick us up when when stumble
With some luck and providence, hopefully you’ll find others around you that will also take your hand. A community of mutuality that will give you support and a place to foster strength during the dark times in your life.
God’s strength is mercy and compassion.
Any bright flame that offers strength through dominion & superiority & savagery & prosperity, is from a radically different source than the God I know.
