One of the darkest places I've ever been is down in a cave. A few years ago, we visited Mammoth Spring Caves. During the tour, once we were deep into the cave, our tour guide turned off his light so we could experience just how dark it was.

While the lights were out you couldn't see your hand in front of your face. I never thought that any other place could ever be so dark until the moment that isolation and discouragement showed up. 

We all experience moments, sometimes days or weeks, in which everything around us appears dark and desolate. Perhaps it is a dead end job, or the kids seem to have forgotten you or the stress of life just leaves you feeling defeated. Whatever the reason for the darkness in your life, let's remember what the miners in the cave had to do; when darkness fell upon them, they ignited their lights. 

“But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.” – John 3:21    

The Light of Christ will illuminate those dark corners of our life and give us hope and an eternal love that will light up our world. 

With the Truth of God as our light, there's no reason to sit in the dark.
