How lovely is your dwelling place,
    O Lord of Heaven’s Armies.
I long, yes, I faint with longing

What joy for those who can live in your house,
    always singing your praises. Psalm 84:1 – 4 NLT

Man in the Darkness

Darkness is the story of mankind without God.  From the Garden of Eden to this present throbbing moment, those who walk apart from God cannot process life correctly.   In the darkness, that which is beautiful can look horrid.  In the same way, that which is ugly can actually look attractive.  By walking in spiritual darkness we are placed in a danger that cannot be calculated, and dare not be underestimated.
