It has been said that light chases darkness, but darkness cannot chase light. Light simply cycles itself and technically leaves, and darkness happens.
Do you notice that darkness seems to be associated with sadness? When our hearts break, when we are sick, when we are in pain, when we are grieving, darkness seems to heighten the emotion.
In the light of day, everyone is awake. If we needed comfort, someone is there to assist us. Friends and family are available to speak with, but at night, when everyone is in a slumber, hardly anyone is there for us.
God didn't promise that our lives would be free of difficulties. He did not promise us perfection and that we will, as human beings exposed to satan, experience grief, sadness, strain, etc. What He did promise is that He will be there with us and will never allow us to experience more than what we can endure.
This is our life as human beings still living in this world that is ridden with pain, loss, hurt, and suffering.
In Revelation 21, Jesus promises His return and His new city will merge with ours. He also promises no more pain, suffering, etc. which makes sense because there will be no more darkness. Our bodies will be transformed into perfect ones. There will be no more death. We will live with Jesus forever! I can only imagine! Praise be to the Lord! These are the things, His promises, that we have to focus on. It absolutely makes living in this imperfect world a lot easier to handle.
God knows our hearts and He knows that the people who love Him will seek Him sooner or later and He will have His arms outstretched for us to run to. He will have His arms around us until we can adjust to whatever ails us, until we can stand back up on our own and be able to move on with the knowledge that He is there with us to support us along the way. He loves us dearly and each and every one of us is precious in His eyes!
Until my next rant... LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
