Some Days the Dawn Can’t Come Soon Enough


Gloom.

Distress.

Darkness.

Deep darkness.

Depths-of-despair darkness.

Depths-of-despair-can’t-stop-the-tears darkness.

For the shackled prisoner…

…and the grieving widow…

…and the abused child…

…and the bankrupt businessman…

…and the abandoned bride…

…and the soldier far from home…

…and the lost soul…

For those in the grips of depression or addiction or torment…

…the dawn can’t come soon enough.

And for such as these, the Son of God came.

“The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.”—Isaiah 9:2.

Question: Who’s living through a dark period this Christmas season? Where can you share the Light?

About tnealtarver

I've traveled and spoken around the world but always love to come home. There I eat exceptional meals, drink coffee to my heart's content, and get loved like nowhere else on earth. I believe a community centered in Christ should be all that and so much more.
