There is something to be said for the night. The darkness holds a sense of promise, as if anything could happen. (Meg Collett, author)
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote, “Darkness of slumber and death, forever sinking and sinking.” Which of those thoughts do you suppose were going through the minds of the disciples on that fateful Good Friday? Their grief seemed to overcome the promise of his resurrection that Jesus had given them. People of faith learn to trust in God’s promise in spite of the darkness.
God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. (Psalm 18:30)
