Dark · Light

returning home after dark…

Returning home after dark…
it’s not my favorite thing to do…

Dark makes it feel late…
too late to accomplish one more thing…
even if it’s just a little after 6 pm…

Dark makes me feel tired…
sometimes I think I’m solar-powered…
after dark… it’s just time to shut down…

But today…
anticipating returning home after dark…
with a car full of groceries…
and chores to do at home…
I consider…

This is the message we have heard from him
and proclaim to you, that God is light,
and in him is no darkness at all.
1 John 1:5 ESV
…even the darkness is not dark to You.
The night shines like the day;
darkness and light are alike to You.
Psalm 139:12 HCSB
So… tonight… I return home in Light…
He in me… and I in Him…

… in Him there is no darkness at all
I praise You… Lord… as Light…
Light shining in the darkness…
Light to which I can always return…
Amen…
