It is in the darkest times that it is easiest to see the light. The beam of a flashlight is indistinguishable in the brightness of the sun, but in the darkest gloom, the beam shines brightly and lights the path before us. II Corinthians 12:9-10 reminds us, And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
There is light in our darkness. There is hope in the path before us. There is strength for the journey. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.
