When you walk into a dark room, most people’s first instinct would be to turn on the lights. They reach over to the wall and flip a switch; it is no longer dark. Now imagine this you walk into a dark room and reach out to turn on the light, but you can’t find the switch. You are left standing in the dark.
For me, it is often like that with God. Just like I am standing in a dark room, and I can’t find the light switch. I get lost in my circumstances, and it feels like God is nowhere to be found. However, The light switch hasn’t moved. It is still in the same place on the wall. It is just the same with God. God is still in the room. He hasn’t left. He is right there. The lights don’t need to be on to know that God is there. Even when you can’t see Him, He is still with you.
It is easy to feel like you are alone and to focus of the dark, when there is not a speck of light. However, instead of focusing on the dark focus on the one who is with you in the dark. Even when you can’t see Him remind yourself that He is there. You will find He always is.
