About finding peace, love, and happiness in the darkness...

Matthew 8:5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. 6 "Lord," he said, "my servant lies at home paralyzed and in terrible suffering." 7 Jesus said to him, "I will go and heal him." (NIV)

The dark circumstances of death, destruction, suffering, and evil are realities and they can occur in your life. However, just because these realities can occur does not mean they should occur. What we must remember when we face death, destruction, suffering, and evil is that God's will is also a reality in your life. What is most important for us to recognize is the occurrence of any of these dark circumstances is NOT part of God's will for your life. The occurrence of any of these dark circumstances goes against the will of God. The question you must ask, in fact, the most important question of your life, is “What do I do when death, destruction, suffering, and evil appear in my life?” How you answer this most important question of your life determines the substance of your daily existence. How you answer this most important question determines whether you have peace, love, and happiness. How you answer this most important question determines whether you leave a bright and brilliant mark upon the hearts of others, or whether you leave a terrible dark blotch written on the hearts of others it takes generations to erase. To confront and defeat death, you are to see Christ as your Savior and as your way to eternal life. To confront and defeat destruction, you are to repair the destruction in His name and in His love. To confront and defeat suffering in others, you are to comfort. To confront and defeat suffering in yourself, you are to pray for strength and then persevere. To confront and defeat evil, you are to resist and bring the Light of His love into every darkness.
