Precious Disciple of Jesus Christ, the Daystar,

Is it night in your soul? Are you experiencing a dark, painful time in your life? Do you find yourself in a seemingly hopeless situation from which there seems to be no way out?

If so, let our Scripture verse for this week minister to you: God gives songs in the night.  Not only does He gives songs in that part of the day after the sun has set and the sky has grown dark, but He also gives songs in the dark times of our lives.

Consider this: Just as the strength of a house is known only after it has faced and endured a terrible storm, so can the power of God’s Word be known only after one has faced and endured a terrible trial.

I can tell you from personal experience that no matter how dark the night, God is faithful to His Word. When we trust in His Word, we will find that the darker the night, the more beautiful the song He gives us.

Here is a song God gave me during a very dark night in my own life. May it bless you:

by MaryAnn Diorio

I walk by faith, and not by sight,
Tho’ great the storm, tho’ black the night.
I listen not to doubt or fear,
But to Your Word I turn my ear
And place my trust in It alone,
And count Your Promises as done.
