Thankfully today, I've seen the Light, literally and shared this with Von and others I've met along the way. I won't spend a lot of time dwelling on the darkness of the past but something happened on our 2004 exploration into the depths of the woods.
It was during this time of quiet that I heard it, or was it a feeling? Regardless of what you call it, I felt God's arms wrap around me and whisper "I love you Lisa, I never left you." I opened my eyes and it ended yet the warmth of the embrace remained. I called to Von, "Did you hear that?" She laughed and shook her head no.
I still remember that moment, about six months prior to a child telling me, "Mrs. Buske, you need Jesus." -- God prepared my heart to accept his invitation to church and eventually into the family of believers. God never left me, I left Him. Why do I share this with you today, so you know there is hope.
Hope isn't found in the darkness, it is found in the light of Jesus. May you only travel in the light because it makes the journey a lot easier. He is waiting for you to respond.
