Out of the Darkness

Jesus shines in the darkness

Have you ever experienced the darkness? I mean REALLY dark darkness! I’m talking darkness beyond: the eerie darkness of a campsite deep in the woods on a moonless night; the frighting darkness that comes during  a hurricane; when the power goes out and all the windows are board up. or the paralyzing darkness of fear.
