And yet my friends say, this loss of hope is for good, turning my dark night into what appears to them as day. In the pitch darkness, these broken plans and secret wishes speak to me. They say, “There is light nearby.” Job 17:12 The Voice
God has redeemed my life from going down to the pit of destruction, and my life shall see the light! Job 33:28 Amplified Bible
In the same way, we can see and understand only a little about God now, as if we were peering at his reflection in a poor mirror; but someday we are going to see him in his completeness, face-to-face. Now all that I know is hazy and blurred, but then I will see everything clearly, just as clearly as God sees into my heart right now.1 Corinthians 13:12 Living Bible
Sin Consequences Crash Humanity~And We Are Fragmented
As the consequences of sin collide with our human condition and leave us fragmented, everything seems blurred, we can’t really see clearly. People don’t sin alone, we are all impacted with negative costs. We live in a fallen world, and we will feel the effects of the lawlessness of our humanity, it causes us to be fragmented people. The Only One Who can make our spirit whole is our Savior, Jesus, He is a healer like no other, He defrags us, creating a miraculous wholeness in our soul, a totality of like spirit like nothing else or no one else in this world could ever accomplish. Jesus creates in us an undivided heart amidst a world divided against God and His good way, truth and life.
Your throne is founded on two strong pillars—the one is Justice and the other Righteousness. Mercy and Truth walk before you as your attendants. Blessed are those who hear the joyful blast of the trumpet, for they shall walk in the light of your presence. Psalm 89:14-15 Living Bible
God Creates~An Atmosphere Of Good In Our Dark Night
Jesus has redeemed our soul, spirit and heart not for this side of heaven only, but for all eternity and in this we find an everlasting hope, a hope that endures through all and in every dark place. We can’t live in times such as these and not be affected by the fallen condition of our world, but we can cling to the good and the good is here every single day, God is good and God is still here in all His goodness and He is with us and for us. This is why we cry out to Jesus when our heart is so troubled by the situations that the consequences of the sin of this world stirs up our soul with.
I will fulfill my vows to you, O God, and will offer a sacrifice of thanks for your help. For you have rescued me from death; you have kept my feet from slipping. So now I can walk in your presence, O God, in your life-giving light. Psalm 56:12-13 New Living Translation
Storm Swept By This World~We Still Stand With Hope
Yet in the darkness we can still sing, the darkness does not take away our heart of worship, nor our voice. We can praise God for the victory that is ahead, we can anticipate the coming of our Savior, our Redeemer. We can hope huge in the strength God can give us to stand firm in our faith even though our eyes can’t see. The enemy comes in like a flood and suddenly sweeps us off our feet and we can choose to stay down, or we can lift up a standard of praise-faith against our enemy and we can not by our might, not by our power, but by the name of Jesus, we can stand up and stand strong.
Yet in the light of day, the Eternal shows me His love. When night settles in and all is dark, He keeps me company— His soothing song, a prayerful melody to the True God of my life. Psalm 42:8 The Voice
It Is Dark~Yet The Purpose Of God Alights Our Praise
Jesus Savior, Healer, Redeemer Of Our Soul, Only You Can Make Our Spirit Whole! Sometimes we go through really “dark” times and we can’t see, we can’t see a way out, we can’t see ahead, yet even in the darkness we can sing, we can praise God for the victory! God keeps us company He is with us, He is holding us in His Mighty Right Hand. In the great challenges we face, He has infused at the center of them, a greater Kingdom purpose! Right now, it might seem like the challenge is overwhelming us, but we can know, without a doubt, that the God Purpose in our challenge is greater than the challenge itself and God with His soothing song is singing over us the purposes of God.
Call to Me, and I will answer you. I will tell you of great things, things beyond what you can imagine, things you could never have known. Jeremiah 33:3 The Voice
In The Dark~We Are Gripped By The Hand Of God’s Grace
Our Way-Maker God is in the darkness with us making a way out, He has a plan, it is good and that is why we sing, we praise our King, because we know whatever comes our way, He has an endgame of victory. God would never leave us or forsake us, even though it is so dark that we can’t even see the hand in front of our face, God is there with us and when we cry out to Jesus, He takes our hand and slips it securely in His Mighty Right Hand and we can feel His presence with us, even if we can’t see. We can praise HIM in the dark, our hope can praise God in advance for this victory and in the darkness we still sing a victorious song of praise, yes, even though our eyes can only see in part, we praise God because He sees in whole and He’s got us, we are gripped in His Grace.
The Lord is my Light and my Salvation—whom shall I fear or dread? The Lord is the Refuge and Stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1 Amplified Bible
Find The Light Of God’s Presence And Fully Face Him
No matter what comes our way, we are fully facing God with hearts of praise lifted up to our Savior, Redeemer And Healer. With the blackness all around us, we do not experience the despair of it because, yet in the darkness there is hope in our God Who can redeem any situation, regenerate the light of hope when it has flamed out and bring a transformation to our circumstance that not even we could have even imagined possible, yes, it will be more than what we ever hoped more. AWE-GOD! We Praise You!
The people walking in darkness have seen a great light. On those living in a pitch-dark land, light has dawned. Isaiah 9:2 Common English Bible
It May Be Pitch Black Out~But God’s Got Us
God is with us, He is holding us in His healing, restoring, renewing, reviving, reconciling hands. He’s got us in a grip that won’t release, but will hold even through the greatest of storms. It is the intention of the evil of the night to blind us, to darken all hope and steal all our peace, but evil can’t shut out the glimmer of glory that comes as we speak and call upon the name of Jesus, and yet in the darkness we sing, we wholly-holy praise God, knowing He is working in the unseen for the breakthrough of kingdom victory on earth as it is in heaven. We sing, we dance we set our spirit free and we experience the treasure of God’s Kingdom in the darkness, the strength of God permeates us and we stand strong, we sing loud, we hope huge in our God. AWE-GOD! We Praise You!
Who among you fears the Lord and obeys his servant? If you are walking in darkness, without a ray of light, trust in the Lord and rely on your God. Isaiah 50:10 New Living Translation

Lord Jesus, ever present God, reveal Your power through our dark situations in theses such as these. Cause us to sing in the darkness and even though our eyes can’t see, we will praise You.

No matter how dark our life situations get, we still sing, our hearts are filled with praise to You.

Water It~ Saturate The Dark Night Air With Truth
Isaiah 9:1 Nevertheless, that time of darkness and despair shall not go on forever. Though soon the land of Zebulun and Naphtali will be under God’s contempt and judgment, yet in the future these very lands, Galilee and northern Transjordan, where lies the road to the sea, will be filled with glory. Living Bible
Acts 17:27 His purpose in all this was that people of every culture and religion would search for this ultimate God, grope for Him in the darkness, as it were, hoping to find Him. Yet, in truth, God is not far from any of us. The Voice
Psalm 89:15 How happy are those who have learned how to praise You; those who journey through life by the light of Your face. The Voice
Isaiah 26:19 Your dead shall live O Lord; the bodies of our dead saints shall rise. You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy!

Amplified Bible
Live It Out – You Can Shine In Your Darkness
Then, oh then, your light will break out like the warm, golden rays of a rising sun; in an instant, you will be healed. Your rightness will precede and protect you; the glory of the Eternal will follow and defend you. Then when you do call out, “My God, Where are You?” The Eternal One will answer, “I am here, I am here.” If you remove the yoke of oppression from the downtrodden among you, stop accusing others, and do away with mean and inflammatory speech, If you make sure that the hungry and oppressed have all that they need, then your light will shine in the darkness, And even your bleakest moments will be bright as a clear day. Isaiah 58:8-10 The Voice
