My heart hurts for friends walking through trials. Through suffering that lies, ‘This will never end.’
I have been there. Many times. So I stand to tell the story, that I am grateful. For in the darkest nights I found my most precious gifts:
As my brother suffered through dying, I discovered Jesus is REAL.
As I walked through divorce, I realized I am never alone.
As I admitted my mistakes, I have discovered my Redeemer.
As I have obeyed, I have witnessed my Restorer.
In the darkness, I have come to know my Friend.
He knows what it is to endure the darkness, for the promise of the light.
So if you’re standing in the dark today, look up. There are beautiful things being birthed in this place.
Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings. ~ Isaiah 58:12 NIV
