There were plenty of dark clouds,
but I was distracted by the stars!

We all have darkness in our lives at one point or another. We can, sadly, focus on the darkness and thus miss the light that beckons us to move forward. The light may sometimes seem like a tiny flicker, but following it reveals the magnitude it holds for us. Think of the stars at night. How many times I’ve stood on the porch and glanced at those tiny stars . . . but I also recall from science class that they are not so tiny! They are also quite powerful. After all, when I stand on my porch and glance around me, all I see is the darkness, but when I look up and see the light, I find that it has overtaken the darkness! Just like the times I look toward our amazing God! In 1 John 2:8 are told “Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining.”
