In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was barren, with no form of life; it was under a roaring ocean covered with darkness. But the Spirit of God was moving over the water. God said, “I command light to shine!” And light started shining.
God looked at the light and saw that it was good. God separated light from darkness and named the light “Day” and the darkness “Night.” Evening came and then morning—that was the first day.
Often, we think that darkness, night, is scary. Or we even think it is bad. But the most beautiful things happen at the juncture of day and night. That liminal moment when light is reaching back for you while pulling ahead into the future. Everything needs darkness to grow. A seed grows in the darkness of the earth.
What are you afraid of?
What does the darkness hold?
What is growing in you?
What hope can you hold onto?
What sustains you?
