Out of the Darkness, Words of my heart, Texas Artist Laurie Pace

So justice is far from us, and righteousness does not reach us. We look for light, but all is darkness; for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows. Like the blind we grope along the wall feeling our way like people without eyes.  At midday we stumble as if it were twilight; among the strong, we are like the dead
Isaiah 59: 9-10

It is so easy to get lost in yourself.  It is so easy to have situations define you. It is so easy to have darkness overtake you.  Even the strongest face trials and temptations. And the weak struggle through each day seeking the strength to even rise from their bed.

Each of us suffers and each of us are vulnerable to be pulled into the darkness of life.  That is why it is important to have a support group of friends or family that can shine a flashlight right back at you... or appear in your bedroom to throw open the drapes in the morning.   You are not alone.

Make that call to someone today that you know needs light in their lives.  Many friends are good at hiding the darkness...but you can make a difference so try.

Words of my heart, Laurie
