Is it just me, or is there a great darkness around us all at present? I know I always find the winter months tough, and added to that, since before Christmas, we’ve pretty much stayed at home full-time other than health appointment, going for a walk, popping round to our local coffee shop to pick up a takeaway coffee and lunch (which we pre-order), all because of high Covid infection rates here once again and I’ve also been feeling exhausted again too.
Yes, I know infection rates have reduced significantly again, and restrictions have eased, but I’m finding it hard to feel comfortable being back ‘out-there’ again, so I’m taking things slowly.
I guess as the above quote states, I personally need to remember that even although there seems to be a darkness surrounding just now, there is hope, because we are assured that
You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.Psalm 18:28 (NIV)
