Marsha's Musings: When God is Covered in Darkness (Psalm 18:11)

He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him, thick clouds dark with water. (Psalm 18:11 ESV)

Do you ever feel as if God has hidden Himself from you?  Have you felt like you were walking all alone in darkness and that life is closing in on you?

God often covers His presence in our lives in a shroud of darkness.  It is during these times that we are forced to walk by faith.  He forces us to pick our way carefully when we can not see the way. It can be a dark and lonesome path and we may feel that God has left us.  

Take heart!  He has not left you!  He will not break His promise to never leave you!  He is only hidden by a covering of darkness for a time. He is still there right beside you even if you don't "see" or hear Him.  Walk on through the darkness in faith and soon enough you will see the Light again.
