We have all experienced some form of darkness. We know what it feels like to be too far gone, not enough, or completely forgotten. But there is hope. Not only does Christ reach in and take us out of those dark places…but He also places us into the Kingdom of Jesus to be forever His. He doesn’t expect us to claw our way out or work to be good enough in order that He might find us worthy of saving. No, He rescues us and delights in us as we are. He won’t leave us in the darkness to go on blindly walking. No, He pulls us out of the pit and gives us a new name and a new purpose. His purpose. Wherever you find yourself today, know that He is making all things new and is capable of turning our most hideous disasters into something beautiful. Open your hands. Let Him lead you into His light.
