Flying through the darkness.

Posted by appolus on December 4, 2022

A long time ago, I remember flying into Glasgow Airport. Now Scotland is a country that spends a significant amount of the year under cloud cover. Yet here I was, above all the clouds, in a perpetually blue sky, about to descend into and below not just dark clouds but a storm system.
 
It suddenly struck me that no matter what kind of darkness or grayness or however driech ( good Scottish word for overcast) it was, or whatever storm was raging, that just above that storm or darkness was a perpetually blue sky. The answer was and always has been to come up higher. To rise up above every situation and come into and dwell in this perpetually blue sky.
It’s there in the deepest darkest valleys. It’s there when there seems to be no light and no way ahead. It’s there, it’s there, He’s there, He’s always there and He has given His children wings that they may fly through the gross darkness into His marvelous light. Wings strong enough to fly through the fiercest storms.
 
Spiritual wings that elevate us from even the deepest of dungeons that can create a way through the darkness. That can disrupt that very darkness with the turbulence of His holiness that pierces the darkness and causes light to fall to earth so that they who dwell in that very darkness can see this great light. The beauty of His holiness in mortal men. A beauty that points to immortality and the eternal. A beauty that penetrates the impenetrable light of God Himself.

    Appolus, I thought it was time to let you know how blessed I am by ALL your writings. You speak the truth, share from your innermost being, and proclaim the whole gospel. As the darkness continues to close in all around us, I pray the glory of God will shine brighter and brighter through His remnant church as we stand firm in the faith. We will be persecuted for His holy name, but Jesus will be our sufficiency through it all. When we are weak, then we are strong in the strength of His might. Greater is He who is in us than He who is in the world. Never will our Jesus leave us or forsake us. Look up, our redemption draws nigh. May you continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. I pray that the waters from your innermost being will continue to flow onto the pages of all you write. It is Life! Thank you. Kathy
