I just wanted to share this and briefly touch on what it has taught me. Imagine yourself as this bean. Shoved into the darkness, a cold and lonely surrounding, you may be forgiven to ask, "Why?" But then something happens...Out of the darkness, you start to grow. You put your roots out and find a firm grip to strengthen yourself. Then this overwhelming desire comes from your core to find a way out of this darkness. You are surprised by your determination and instinctive knowledge to find 'light.' When you push past the dirt, the rock, the obstacles, you burst forth into a new day, full of light. You rejoice in your new found freedom and stretch out your arms heavenward.
do not curse the darkness that you find yourself in, thank it, for it will bring out something beautiful, if you trust in the creator of light. ♥
We are his servants because the same God who said that light should shine out of darkness has given us light. For that reason we bring to light the knowledge about God's glory which shines from Christ's face.
2 Corinthians 4:6
