Ever had dark days?
What do you do with them?
Glad to see a crack of sunlight under the door, do you stuff those dark days in the past? Run as quickly toward the light as your legs will take you?
Do you wallow in them? Wear them as a badge, perhaps—a symbol of endurance?
As I reflect on the last eight weeks or so, I’ve had all of those reactions. My eyes fell on this verse a couple of days ago though, and I’ve been turning it over in my mind ever since.
“What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs” (Matthew 10:27).
Friends have said, “You’ll have to write about this.”
“There are things here for your next book.”
“You hate that this kind of thing happens to anyone, but at least you’re a writer. You can write and minister to the rest of us.”
I don’t have a fully formed idea of what that would look like right now, but I do know this.
I have heard from Him in dark days, and I’ll be speaking in the daylight. What He whispers will be proclaimed from my roof.
He doesn’t waste anything…and neither will I.
