I look back and see my past covered in darkness. The darkness of broken relationships, shattered dreams, unexpected losses, and unrelenting pain. I see only ashes.
But one day, I heard His voice telling me to look back again. Look back over your life, but this time don’t focus on the darkness. Peer into it, look above it, look below it, look around it. Look into the hardest moments of your life. Do you see it?
Look, LOOK, and you will see glimpses of Light. Glimpses of My Light in every dark situation you’ve ever fought. The darkness tried to consume you, tried to overtake you, but I was ALWAYS there. Glimpses of My Light surrounding you and protecting you. Glimpses of My Light showering you with Mercy and Grace. Molding you, healing you, strengthening you, and preparing you to walk out of the darkness to stand firm in Light of the Lord.
You were in the darkest dark, but now, looking back what do you see?
CHILD, MY DEAR CHILD, THERE IS MUCH MORE THAN DARKNESS IN YOUR PAST.
