Darkness and Light
I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars. (Og Mandino, 20th-century American author)
Would you really want it to be daylight all the time? Mandino’s observation is helpful, isn’t it? It just may be that when the sun seems to be hidden by the clouds and the day is dreary, we should look for the bright spots in the darkness. Is there some good thing to experience, something to learn that will give value to the darkness and hope for the light to come?
You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. (Proverbs 18:28)
