Light and Dark.


I’ve been tinkering about in my new space and am creating a special area to commit greater time to my art and writing for the blog and other avenues, as well. I painted this on the wall in my new office at home. This verse has really been ministering to me this week. It is so amazing to look back at all the dark times of my life – all those moments of confusion, hurt, pain and ignorance and to see that God is using them for greater things. He is using them in ways I cannot comprehend or imagine myself. God’s ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts.

It is often difficult to understand why we go through trials or pain. Why do people betray us? Why do relationships fail? Why do people hurt us? Why do we make wrong choices?

I know it’s very difficult to see through pain. Impossible, even. It’s tough to envision what is beyond personal hurt. Only love can clear the way. Only truth can part the clouds and teach our hearts to feel again.

And God is always there in that truth. God is always willing and able to reach us in our confusion, lies, betrayal and fear. There is no such thing as too far gone. But we have to move. We have to reach.

A miracle is often just a shift in perception.
