And last but not least, a thought about the wonder of walking with God:

There is a place beyond the darkness, beyond the night, that you can only reach by going through that darkness. There is beauty, a wonder, a mystery that awaits those who persevere through trials, who hang on even in the dark. There is an incredible light beyond the night of doubt, of hurt, of struggle. But you can only get there by facing the darkness with truth, with honesty, with white-knuckled fists beating on the chest of God. Just as there was no resurrection without the blackness of the cruxifiction, so we may only reach the new, wondrous places God has prepared for us by going through our own times of darkness and hanging on to Him through them. So, for those of you in the darkness, hang on, my friends! For those coming out into a new light, rejoice and bask in the beauty. For those afraid of the dark, it's okay, His perfect love will drive out your fear. May God bless you and fill your day with wonder.
