Even the Darkest Night will End

sometimes life's paths…. 
take us down ways that are…
and twisty..
and just when we think they can't get 
any darker..
or more 
they do.

the lighting shifts…
on the path
slowly ....becomes more difficult to see.
The way, is less safe,
and even more frightening than a just a step ago.
Before, we know it..
our every day lives, feel like some sort of horror film..
we bump into shiny happy people,
and put on our shiny happy face…smile,
and enjoy their joy..bask in the light of their existence,
and suddenly they are gone..
We turn and see we are again..
alone on a path…

The thing… about being alone.. on that path..
in the dark..
is , it's so creepy..
and, frightening..
and quiet..
but LOUD.
every leaf that crinkles… beneath the foot..
stones tumbling …
rustling in the shadows…
causing our heart to race..
it skips a beat and pounds so very loudly..
adding to the strange noises in the darkness we are surrounded by..
then suddenly one
hear ones own breath.. 
the anxiety of every moment runs so very high…
"keep calm..
keep calm…
press on .. 
press on…
one step forward..
just one more..
day light cometh…"
it's the shadows that are the worst…
one MUST remember...
because they are the easiest TO fear..
It's in the shadows that our secret fears hide…
where demons reside,
where lies
and dead dreams,
and ancient tales, 
buried and told 
now forgotten,
and old…
live on..
if live is what you call them…
it really is more like
and seep 
as they try to drift into your mind…
the shadowy places
the darkest of dark spaces…
it's why we try we try as we should
two run with all our might
into the Light
the Light 
that is Jesus Christ.
when the valleys
are shadowy…
and the way is dark
and full of gloom…
we HAVE to 
hold fast…
That is what I do…
I remember the scriptures..
Holding fast to the promises of God..
praying that YOU do too,
are holding fast to His promises…
if you are walking in the shadowy places..
call out to Jesus..
and hold FAST to His promises..
because In Christ..
we have nothing to fear…
and as the wise Winston Churchill advised us…
don't set up camp on the scary trail..
ARE loved
YOU are NOT alone
Life can be VERY hard..
but Jesus IS alive
IS seated at the right hand of the Father
for me and for you!
because of Him..
we've got this…

May Peace be yours as you walk 
this Path…
