Dark seasons are times when we go through troublesome times: sicknesses, grief, financial setbacks, depression, lack of direction, addiction, loneliness and various trials. We might feel like stuck in a dark tunnel with no light is sight but discover that the absence of light does not mean the absence of God’s presence. Not only He is there with us, but He is working on our way of escape. God works in our lives the most when we realize it the less.
A blind person learns to use his/her other senses in a greater way to compensate for their lack of sight. When we go through dark seasons, our spiritual hearing, sight, and touch intensifies. Once we are out of the tunnel, we recognize that our faith and trust in the Lord has increased. We learn to see Him in the dark. To walk by faith, and not by sight.
Through it all, God increases His light, His glory, in and through our lives. Our lights become constant; not flickering, flashing, or flooding. But bright, with a forever life, not run by battery but by the power of God. We trust His amazing ways, from glory to glory!
Psalms 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
