Out of My Darkness

Following on from yesterday’s blog post where I talked about how I’m beginning to dislike lying in bed trying to sleep, I have been reminded of the following song:

Out of my darkness God called me,
Out of the death of my night,
Out of the shadows of sorrow,
Into the life of his light.
 
Out of my darkness he called me,
Out of my doubt, my despair,
Out of the wastes of my winter,
Into the spring of his care.
 
Out of my darkness he called me
Into his sunshining day,
Out of my gloom to his glory;
What could I do but obey?
 
Out of your darkness he calls you,
Out of your doubt, your despair,
Out of the wastes of your winter,
Into the spring of his care.
by John Gowans

I pray regularly that God will give me the strength to get through these days, and although I may still be finding it difficult to not get upset because my Dad has passed away, I believe I would be finding this even more difficult if God wasn’t supporting me.

Therefore, I urge you to talk to God about all that concerns, worries or upsets you, as He, and He alone can truly give you the strength and the encouragement to face each day.
