Tonight the wind was blowing, and blowing HARD. Hard enough that the power went out...and we were suddenly sitting in the dark. It was a little bit scary, to say the least.
It made me think of the first Christians after the cruxifiction--what's happened? How'd we end up in the dark? Is He ever coming back?
They were scared. They were angry. And they didn't even have the reassurances we have in the New Testament, that Jesus IS returning, and this world is His...He just doesn't do it our way.
We eventually lit some candles, and our eyes got used to dark, and tried to make do. It's hard to hang out in the dark for long.
So tonight I pray that the Light comes soon, that the Holy Spirit fills us to overflowing.
