Molly’s Minute: Walking In The Dark

April 24, 2020

Normally, life feels like walking in the dark with a flashlight.

We can’t see too far ahead—we never know exactly what’s going to happen. But we have a little bit of light. We’ve got a pretty good idea of what things look like for the next few days.

That’s normally what life is like. But lately, it’s been feeling like my flashlight’s out of batteries. I’m walking in such deep darkness that I can’t see my hand in front of my face.

Every day brings something unexpected for us, a twist or a bump in the road that we couldn’t see coming, because our flashlights are out.

And that can be really scary.

But it can also be an invitation. An invitation to truly walk by faith and not by sight.

Because in these times we’re living in, the road ahead is pitch dark, our flashlights are dead, and if we tried to walk by what we can see, we’d surely trip and fall. 

But there is One who can see it all, clear as day.

So let’s have faith in Him. Let’s trust that the lights are on for Him. And let’s believe that, someday soon, He’ll give us some new flashlight batteries.

2 Corinthians 5:7 “…for we walk by faith, not by sight.”
