There is so much new life in the darkness – so take heart

Life can be described in terms of shades: dark and light; black and white. We think of darkness as bad and light as good, yet God created darkness and light and said that it was all good. Even God Himself brooded in the darkness before the creation. Many of the most expressive and creative people in history have ‘dwelt in the darkness’ of creativity before their light has been shown to the world. Often great art comes through great pain and hardship. Childbirth is a painful experience for a woman, but that pain brings new life to the world – humanity is birthed in pain.

Whatever you are facing today, know that it might just be a pathway to something creative, new and special. In your darkness today may your thoughts, creativity and your life be drawn towards th light that is often at the end of the tunnel.

There is a darkness.


Brooding and bubbling.

It lies within me.


Active and living.

While all around


Disturbed and troubling.

Dances around us,


Restless and unforgiving.

But here inside


Warm and inviting

In this darkness


Radiant and warm

Shines my heart


Of love and joy

Reflecting glorious


As brightest star

Shining sparkling


In darkest night.

And then from


…blinding light.
