This is a dark world we live in; and the darker it becomes, the more grist to feed depression.
I was reading in 1 Corinthians, Chapter 4, the other morning and was arrested by verse 5 – “wait until the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart.”
I wrote the following notes in the margin of my Bible:
“Do not be concerned with the evil and darkness in the world today. Jesus will expose it all when He comes. As a servant of Jesus Christ, my job is to look for the light.”
As I lifted my pencil from the page, I experienced great relief. Yes, in the midst of this dark world, I can yet look for the light – in the laughter of my granddaughter, in an encouraging word from a good friend, and in the words of my favorite author, George MacDonald.
