The Longest Night...


Today is the winter solstice, which of course is also the longest night of the year. But it doesn't have to be the darkest. From this night on, until the summer solstice, the days grow longer and the nights shorter. And I've used this example very recently (about light overcoming darkness) but I will again...when light is brought into a darkened room the room becomes light--overcoming the darkness--but darkness cannot be brought in to make the room dark. I suppose the same can be said of a person's heart...

"The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it."
John 1:5
