From Our pastor
What if I told you that in that dark place is where you find your savior? What if I told you that God is the God of dark places. He knows what is there.
He also knows that it won’t ever take you from his love. He also knows how long the dark will last. And he knows what is on the other side.
It WILL eventually break forth, heaven will open, the light will shine down. The rainbow will glitter and the meadow will glisten and the lion will be there lying down with the lamb just waiting for you to run your fingers through its mane.
But you won’t do it, because you have another thing on your mind, in these green pastures.
The bridegroom is there. And the only way to see the bridegroom is through the dark places. He is also walking with you, even if you don’t see him or feel him, because he longs for you like you long for him.
I don’t know why the dark places are necessary. I don’t know where there are so many of them. I don’t know why the wicked seem to prosper and those who long for the revelation of the sons of God are so plagued with so much pain.
The answers about gold being refined and laundry being clean don’t really help much in a long night of fear and pain and weeping…but it is true anyway.
In your tears, God is there. He is keeping them. In your blindness, he sees. He knows what is in the dark. And he knows what is on the other side.
Patience, dear ones. Your Saviour is coming.
