Never Losing the Light: Illumination for The Future

“… without one ray of light.” that’s where you’ve been for months now, and yes, I have deliberately kept you ‘in the dark’ regarding your future.

walking in darknessI wanted you to grow accustomed to the darkness of ‘not knowing’.

It has been difficult to “adjust” your eyes to walking purely by faith and not by sight, yes?

It is necessary.

Very necessary.

Do you hear Me child?

(I’ll say it again.)

Very necessary!

I want you to become so accustomed to walking this way, that darkness or light?

Neither make any difference.

I want you to develop a highly tuned sense of “night vision”.

I want you to walk according to what I tell you, not what you see.

Your eyes will deceive you at times.

(Have you not already discovered this?)

How things “look” and how they “are” are often two very different things. Ah, but you know, the darkness and the light are both the same to Me.

I AM not bound by any such limitation.

I want you to be as comfortable walking with Me in darkness as you are walking with Me in the light.

Think of The Wisemen of old—they could not find Me in the bright light of day—in the rush and throng.

I led them by night… by a star.

revelation for the dark“Who among you fears the LORD and obeys His Servant? If such men walk in darkness, without one ray of light, let them trust in the LORD, let them rely upon their God.”

Isaiah 50:10Isaiah 50:10
English: World English Bible - WEB

10 Who is among you who fears Yahweh, who obeys the voice of his servant? He who walks in darkness, and has no light, let him trust in the name of Yahweh, and rely on his God.

All this way! All this effort! To end up here…

in this miserable,

dark place.

CATERPILLAR:

Dream-Maker? Do You hear me? I hate this place!

Oh-why-oh-why, did I ever pray those prayers!

Dream-Maker how much longer? Haven’t I waited long enough? Dream-Maker?

I did everything You told me to do—I followed. I obeyed chrysalis-clipart-butterfly-pupaYour instructions. Is this all there is? Is this what obeying gets you?

A tight dark cell—alone? Dream-Maker, why don’t You answer me?

I call and call…  are You there?

 

(DREAM-MAKER:)

I’m here.

Oh…  (whew!) Dream-Maker, it’s You!

I called and called…

Can we go now?

Is it time?

Dream-Maker? (sniff-sniff)

Pleeeeeeeez… let me out!

Changed In The Dark

cocoon

I’ve had you in the dark – it’s true!

How could you understand?

That all from the beginning

Is exactly as I’ve planned.

~~~

Could I choose, dear one, to smash your heart?

No, it would be cruelest wrong

Instead my plan, to change your heart,

And give it bright new song

~~~

I know the dark times frightened you

And filled your heart with dread…

But could I have surprised you

If you’d glanced what was ahead?

~~~

Release the past – gone is the old;

“Away… all former things!”

Instead unfold, with heart now bold

My gift to you… these WINGS!
