Even the Darkness is not Dark

Yesterday my kids and I went on a day trip to West Virginia. It was a day of fun and adventure for us. We rode horses up a steep mountain to the top of Seneca Rocks. Then we took a scenic drive through the Dolly Sods. Then we made a stop at Blackwater Falls.
We had breakfast before we left and then stopped for supper in Keyser, WV.
We had originally planned to include a tour through the caverns, but because of time, we left that part out yesterday.
I was not disappointed to leave out the caverns, we have been through them before on a previous trip. It is dark and chilly in there. And at one point the guide turns off all the lights to show you what true darkness looks and feels like. 
And darkness IS a feeling.
I have been at such dark and desperate times in my life that I feel like I was in a pit of darkness. It was a hard time and I felt despair everyday. Only God's grace and mercy got me through those times. He truly is my savior.
God is bigger than any problem you encounter. He is not afraid of the dark. Give your fears, worries and desperations to Him and trust Him to take care of you.

Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You. (Psalms 139:12 NASB)
