Dark nights of the soul always come to an end. We might feel as if they will last forever when troubles come upon us, but light eventually shines in every dark place. That’s good news for all of us. We cannot avoid the dark times of life. They are inevitable. But those who have faith in the God of light will always see the dawn again.
A dear friend of mine lost her infant granddaughter today. No doubt, she is walking in the depth of darkness right now with her family. They will grieve such a profound loss, but their faith will sustain them and eventually the light will come back in their lives.
I am certain that the morning comes for all of us who must walk in darkness. The day will dawn and the morning star will rise in our hearts.
And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
2 Peter 1:9 NIV
