From the conception of Dayspring’s (in)courage blog, I’ve been a reader. With content written by authors such as Ann Voskamp, Angie Smith, Emily Freeman, and Tsh Oxenreider—just to name a few—it would be hard to go wrong.
So, you can imagine I’m very excited to have the honor of sharing my heart over on (in)courage today as a guest writer!
Love in the Dark
As he sat there in the dirty, stinking, cell with his back against the cold wall, Joseph had every reason to be miserable.
Sold by his brothers as a slave into a foreign land he’d risen to “top slave” in Potiphar’s house. He’d been responsible and in charge of his master’s possessions. And what was his reward? Because of his purity and respect for both his God and his master, he’d been thrown into prison, all because he wouldn’t sleep with Potiphar’s wife. She’d taken her revenge for his refusal, seeing to it that he would rot in jail.
Yes, Joseph had every reason to be downcast, depressed, and disheartened.
Loved reading your writings today at incourage me today. Congrats and blessings for many more guest appearances and writings there!!! God is so good and uses so many to share His love and I am thrilled that I found that blog today for the first time and that you were behind His message today.
With love and hugs from TX,
Thank you so much Diana! Thanks for visiting here and taking the time to comment, I appreciate it!
How easy it is to squint my eyes at the stuff in the dark, instead of looking to the LIGHT and receive HIS ‘loving kindness’. Then I want to interrogate myself, why am I doing it! When it is so much easier to see Light than darkness.
Danielle, as I mentioned over at (in)courage, this post brought to mind fireflies. Their soft, glowing presence provides imagery of God’s love glimmering in the midst of darkness. That thought became the impetus for my most recent post, “Fireflies in the Dark.” I’d be honored if you’d stop by to read it, at http://www.nancyaruegg.com , From the Inside Out. I’ve made it clear your meaningful post sparked the firefly-idea! Thank you, Danielle, for your inspiration.
So proud of you!! Loved reading your piece there.
