Darkness is often viewed as something negative. I grew up fearing things of the dark. As a child I was introduced to the Candy Man and Bloody Mary and I knew that as long as the lights were on I would be safe. Life has led me to believe that most crime happen at night. Heck, my darker skin has been viewed as something bad. So why would I believe anything other than this.
I have discovered that the greatest things emerge from darkness. As we journey through life we take snapshots of the things or people we want to remember. Before technology became this advanced the only way you could develop those snapshots was in a dark room. One of the most complex and majestic creations, creations, the stars, can only been seen in the darkness of night. And more importantly the only way we can reap a harvest is to bury the seed in the darkness of the earth. Also a child remains in the darkness of its mother’s womb only to emerge in to the light as one of God’s greatest creations.
You are not defined by the actions of others!
When you’re in a season of testing it is common for us to doubt God with the age old question of, “God, why me?“ Well, why not you.God knew us before we were formed in our mother’s womb. At a point in time I thought this scripture was in reference to the mother who birth me into this world. As I began to study this passage it dawned on me that He is speaking of the beginning of motherhood because a mother’s womb birthed all the generations before us. My point is, God chose you for your journey! You are the only person that God entrusted to carry out the plan he has for your life. I didn’t make this up, it’s in the Bible. So, God has given me the assignment of sharing my journey with you because I was strong enough to make it through my journey so I can be a testament that will help you on your journey.
