The discipline of darkness…

Does it seem sometimes that God is hidden to you? It seems that there is no access to the presence of God. The heavens appear brazen and impenetrable. Our words bounce off the ceiling. The maturing disciple understands that these are moments not for anger or sulking but for resting and listening. God has already spoken many words to us. Some we have heard; many we have ignored. It is a matter of quieting our souls so they are at peace; we are able to be “still and know”. Rest today in the knowledge that the greatest darkness occurs just before the dawn. – Ron Friesen
