There is Light in the Darkness
Posted December 13, 2013on:
Today has been a hard day. I’ve felt anxious and overwhelmed. There isn’t any specific reason for it, just a tugging at my heart of heavier things.
I want to curl up and sleep, block out the low feelings for a little while until my cheery self returns.
He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13-14
I read those verses today. Delivered from the domain of darkness. Transferred to His kingdom. Redeemed. Forgiven.
There is such comfort there. Comfort that this darkness can’t hold me. I am redeemed from it.
I may still feel like curling up, resting from the world a bit. But in that feeling, I can cling to the hope that this world is not my world, this darkness does not have dominion over me. I am redeemed. I am forgiven. I am His.
