When you can’t find a match to light the flame, sing.
When the rain refuses to let your fledging flicker burn, sing.
When the darkness is thick and the sunrise far-off, sing.
Soon enough, your heart will sing in sync and Truth will push out lies. Soon enough, despair will be displaced and death will be defeated no matter how deep it has settled into your bones.
Truth always wins.
And when the darkness creeps back in to whisper your heart into doubting, “I don’t know, it’s pretty dark out there…”
Truth still always wins, even when doubt whispers otherwise.
Truth is a fire that doesn’t go out.
The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned. Isaiah 9:2
