For dark moments


You say: Night consumes my soul.
I am incapable of believing, praying, loving.
 
Jesus says:
 
Then let it be night.
This is the time when the false lights in your soul
go out and a new day is ushered in.
 
Purified in the night, you will be ready for Me,
the Bright Morning Star,
to rise in your life.
 
Take courage and walk step by step
through the night,
obedient to God and His Word.
 
Be faithful in your daily responsibilities;
be faithful in prayer even if you feel nothing.
 
Just take the next step I show you
in the darkness,
 
and you will come
one step closer to the light.
 
 
-B.Schlink
