Darkness of soul is a great descriptor of depression, but Jesus promises that He is the light that shines in the darkness. May those of us living in dark places let Him lead us, and may we follow.
Jesus doesn’t lead me geographically, though sometimes He does. He doesn’t drive my car or walk ahead of me on the golf course. He leads from within – my mind, will, and emotions. He shows me what to think and what to say, how to act and what to do, how to love and how to have great peace.
