Darkness is as light

To be honest I've been struggling to keep my head above water lately, and have felt a bit lost and alone. Yesterday though I read Psalm 139 and the verses (7-12) jumped out of the page at me.

"Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me, even the darkness will not be dark to you the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you."

Even in the darkness... He is Lord. He is Master. He is THERE. His hand is still on me. He HOLDS me fast. Truly nothing can separate me from the love of Christ... not even the depths. What a promise... I can never go so far that He can not reach. Never be so hardened that His love can not break through. Never walk so far away, that He won't be right beside me guiding me back on the narrow way. Yes, I feel encouraged today. Even the darkness is as light to our Lord!
