No matter how devastating adversity may be, when we truly love the Light of God, the Light of God shines in our darkness. The Light of God can put the desire of our heart in proper perspective. When we can see ourselves and see our world with the Light of God shining within us, we see devastation and darkness in His Light. When we have the Light of God shining within us, we would rather do what the Light desires of us, even in our moments of darkness. The pain of our darkness and devastation, no matter the cause, is fed by the darkness, and when the Light of God is brought into the darkness, the darkness disappears. The darkness does not fill the emptiness in our soul. The darkness only stirs up a pain-filled hunger and thirst in our soul to such an extent we will often do anything to take away the pain. However, the Light of God fills our emptiness and takes away the devastation in our soul with peace and contentment beyond our understanding.
