It is a moment of surrender when I leave the cocoon of my bed to wrestle with a wide awake mind in the shadows of the night. To give up the comfort of sweet slumber and lean into the darkness. I search for purpose and reason for this rustling of heart and soul but searching doesn’t mean finding. Tonight was one of those answerless nights.
It is a night when words echo back like a slumbering breath – when darkness obscures vision and my heart begs to see. Yet, in this hollow moment my soul feels strangely warmed. For even now when I feel most alone, His Presence beckons me to come.
Come into the darkness and reach for the hand of God.
I entrust my spirit into Your hands. You have redeemed me, O Eternal, God of faithfulness and truth.
Psalm 31:5 The Voice
