In John’s gospel He begins with the astonishing statement, In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God.
The same God who created light chooses to love us from a hidden darkness through which we can only see by faith. Because we cannot see our Heavenly Father we are pressed deeper each day into an absolute dependence on His word. How I wish some days that I could sit around the campfire with Jesus and ask Him questions and share with Him my longings and fears. But He simply smiles from His secret place even as I write these words and waits for my heart to still. Then in that silence comes springing from a place known only to God that joy no words can tell. Joy unspeakable and full of glory!
