In the Darkness

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.
