When things go bad, what are the immediate thoughts that comes to mind? Likely at the top of list is, "Why me?" I don't deserve this. Shortly after, there is the honest thought of, "God. Where are you? Don't you care? Don't you see me? Are you blind? Hello?!" …. and then silence.
During that moment of silence… comes that nagging thought, "God. Are you real?" It is a dark place to be when left in this desolate place. I've been there more than once. It is in this dark place we desperately search for answers, hoping with revelation we can exit the darkness.
When you find yourself alone and in the midst of darkness, remember: where there is light, there is no darkness. Light dispells or breaks up the darkness. Jesus is our source of light. That is easy to say, but in practical terms what does it mean? It means if you can but find Jesus you will find the way out of the darkness. Sadly… some do, some don't.
The darkness I refer to is a spiritual lack of light. It is a spiritual void, but it is felt physically. One can find ones' self propelled there because of external physical circumstance. It might be the death of someone or possibly long term illness contributes to your journey. Sometimes the shattering of a dream or the let down felt from abandonment will lead one to a dark place in your life.
As real as the darkness is, we must remember the reality of the light is even more brilliant. So the trick is… how do you once again, turn on the light?
