Sometimes I struggle with my faith. Something I should not do seems good, even feels good.
If I avoid that behavior I am uncomfortable. I want that good feeling. Without it I will be uncomfortable, maybe even miserable… For a season.
But in the end, I will overcome and remove some of the clouds that keep God’s light from reaching my heart and mind. The more of His light I walk in, the more peace and joy I will have. When I overcome, then it is good. I can do more for the Kingdom by bringing more God into the world.
I praise him in the struggle. I praise him in the Dark Night….
Because I know what sweet times await when I can praise him in the light!
