Being a shining light in the hours of darkness………

Psalms 119: 105

My the Lord be the light of your path in the hours of darkness.

May the Lord be the light of your path in the hours of darkness.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.


1. the state or quality of being dark : The room was in total darkness.
2. absence or deficiency of light: the darkness of night.
3.wickedness or evil: Satan, the prince of darkness.
4.obscurity; concealment: The darkness of the metaphor destroyed its effectiveness.
5.lack of knowledge or enlightenment: heathen darkness.
6.lack of sight; blindness.

When your surroundings are feeling very dark turn to our Father God and praise him.  Continued praise will lighten your spirit and lift you out this darkness.  Perhaps singing a favorite hymn will remind you of all your blessing God has provided.

While you sing, really feel the words penetrate in your heart and soul.

Light After Darkness

Light after darkness,
  Gain after loss,
Strength after weakness
  Crown after cross;
Sweet after bitter,
  Hope after fears,
Home after wand’ring,
  Praise after tears

Sheaves after sowing,
  Sun after rain,
Sight after mystery,
  Peace after pain;
Joy after sorrow,
  Calm after blast,
Rest after weariness,
  Sweet rest at last.

Near after distant,
  Gleam after gloom,
Love after loneliness,
  Life after tomb;
After long agony,
  Rapture of bliss,
Right was the pathway,
  Leading to this.
