It would be easier to wait till the story is written, till the final chapter is finished, till one knows. It is also nice to describe life from the mountain top; fantastic vistas, balmy breezes, blissful sunshine. But you know as well as I that a lot of life happens trundling through briary paths between stones and cacti or over blazing desert stretches; traversing winding mountain passes with frigid winds and fording swollen streams.
And so a question I’ve been pondering is, “What does it mean to worship in the dark?”
I haven’t got thunderous answers to my flood of questions. Only one still small assurance: “I am with you.” As these four words continue to settle in, they run like life-giving liquid deep deep down. A small assurance becomes a guiding star.
You see the preacher said Sunday that faith is not a leap in the dark but a walk in the light. Another quote I read recently said, ‘Patience with family is love. Patience with others is respect. Patience with self is confidence and patience with God is faith.’

“Patience with God is faith”–love that thought! Thanks for the encouragement to worship in the dark!
😢 I needed that right now, big time. Thank you God, and Thankyou Karen
What a beautiful quote. And you are a living example of this patient faith. Truly God is with you.
This is good!
