When Times are Dark

Bees under a porch light

When times are dark not everything that glimmers is leading you home. A light bulb is only a dim and fragile substitute for the sun.

If we are not willing to go without comforts and wait on the Lord for what He desires us to have we can easily be diverted from our path and find ourselves lost.

Bees apart from the hive are lost and if they do not find their way back they quickly perish.

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD. Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
(Psa 27:1-7)

  1. Life is tricky... I honestly believe that it isn't about resting assured in His light... It's in letting it guide us as we live life:) Unlike the bees, we will always find our way as long as we learn to trust God in any situation. I just recently realized that when we stray, there is a reason for it. A purpose... A Lesson. We just have to be open to it and willing to grow from it. Life will become clearer with each misstep... Just like a puzzle. All the pieces are ugly until you put it together to make a beautiful picture... Eventually it'll all make sense. :)
