When I see the darkness in me,
Brighter the light you shine.
When I search for darkness in you,
Dimmer the light that’s mine.

Just when darkness seems to have its way, God’s brilliance bursts through. Time after time He proves His love in His attention to the details of our lives. It’s not in the blanket blessings that fall on us all where intimacy is realized; it’s when we become aware of how much He desires to be a part of every little moment. God’s love for you is absolutely unique as He has never loved someone in the same way He loves you. Look for Him to continually prove it.

We each so desire to be connected, I came across this statement from Bob Lefsetz (thank you Darren) and it really tells how the world around us feels.

“It’s dark inside my mind. Do you get that feeling? That there’s a plethora of stimuli surrounding you but there’s a force field between you and the rest of the universe? That you’re locked inside your head and you can’t break out? That no one understands you and you’re dying to make a connection but it’s impossible? I feel that way all the time. My whole life is about trying to eradicate this feeling, I’m trying to make a connection.”

We can be the solution if we will.

I came across this quote in a new book I’m reading, which I’ll tell you much more about after finishing. The quote really spoke to me as I was praying for so many of you that are going through some really rough times. I am heartened by your courage and the trust you demonstrate knowing that one day God will use this current challenge to shine on the lives of others. Be encouraged today.
