“For You are my lamp, O Lord; and the Lord illuminates my darkness” (2 Samuel 22:29).

True faith is exposed not on Sunday mornings but, rather, those private moments of darkness dominated by loss, pain, and uncertainty. Too much of what’s passed off today as faith is nothing more than trite phrases; quaint and syrupy metaphors exchanged as pleasantries between those who mask their tears behind a facade of “Sunday attire” and smiling faces. Confessing faith while sitting on a padded pew in a climate controlled sanctuary is useless until it is lighting the way in the harshness of life’s darkest days.
