It is all well & good to have faith
when the sun shines.
It's effortless to believe in God's promises
when Life is your friend.
But at some point - there will be darkness,
we know not when or how.
But when it does arrive, for it always arrives,
that is where faith is truly stretched & tested.
It will be an inaudible whisper,
tugging at the back of your mind...
"Did God reallllly say...."
The first lie, the oldest lie,
uttered in staggering confidence
by the original gaslighter.
That kind of Darkness loves nothing more
than the company of your mind.
Your doubts are sweeter than any flower's nectar,
fueling his very life force.
I am here to remind you, and also me,
yes, He really did say.
And so, when the voice comes -
an enchanting whisper in the Darkness,
Steady your shaky hands, strengthen your resolve.
Then answer with a bold & self-assured voice:
"It may be Dark right now, but Light is coming.
It is all well & good."
And it is.
