When in Dark Places

My heart goes out to the families of the 19 firefighters lost in the Yarnell Hill fire.

You are in my prayers.

As the wife of a firefighter, tragedies like this hit a little too close to home.

I wonder what I would do if I lost my husband the way so many wives lost husbands last Sunday. How would I go on? Is it even possible to pick oneself back up after such a loss?

It is possible. There is One whose peace "passeth understanding." Jesus Christ is the only source of true peace. I know that if we turn to Him, He can heal our deepest wounds, soothe our most aching sorrow, and fill with light our loneliest darkness.

I have experienced that peace. In my own dark places, my own suffering, I have been lifted by the light of His love.

He is only waiting for us to turn to Him.
