The Darkness Is Crowding In


Do you ever feel like the darkness is crowding in? Do you feel like it is smothering you and making you feel like you are the only person in the world experiencing that kind loneliness and sadness? I do. Then the depression sets in. It is at that time that we are vulnerable to attacks. Attacks on our mind, emotions, and spirit. There is good news though!

"For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness." Psalm 18:28

King David wrote that after God delivered him from Saul and all his enemies. I'm sure David frequently felt alone. He had been crowned king of a country that he couldn't rule. He was on the run for his life, but David knew God was with him always.

We need to claim that in the times when the darkness is so thick we can feel it. God promised to "never leave us nor forsake us" We are never completely alone.

  1. I do NOT know how people walk through such dark times like depression without the HOPE that our Father so graciously gives. Great post!
