I once wrote,
“Brave and fearless is the warrior, although the child
within weeps. I fear not the darkness for it surrounds
and comforts me.”
I held this to be a maxim in my life. It was not until years later that I discovered the truth. The weeping child is a child of God, fearful believing I was alone, when in fact I was not alone. While in the darkness the hand of the Lord was upon me, comforting and protecting me from harm. I now stand in the light of the Lord and weep for those who remain in the darkness.
