Darkness Is God Too

We praise so much of God being the light, of Jesus lighting the way,
And being the light of the earth
That we make people forget God is in the darkness.
“He made darkness his secret hiding place;
His pavilion round about HIm were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.”
 – Psalms 18:11 KJV
So many people are convinced that God is gone when all is so dark.
We teach so often that evil is black, dark, and unknown,
But that is not true.
God loves the darkness,
And as much as He allows us to know,
Everything about Him is unknown to us.
People wouldn’t be so afraid of the dark.
If we didn’t convince them God will only be in the light.

Marching for the King

With my head held high and my voice filled with joy,
Marching forward in an army devoted to the King,
“My heart is inditing a good matter:
I speak of the things which I have made touching the King:
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”
I gladly release the praises from my mouth.
I had refrained and hid what was inside too long.
There’s nothing I can do but let it out.
So many obstacles try to get in my way to the kingdom,
And I constantly stumble and fall.
But the King and His court are faithful to protect me
And guide me to the royal wall.
The gates are open and welcome to those who serve
And remain faithful to their Lord.
And as the enemies approach to seek their revenge,
The Gatekeeper warns with His Holy Word.
“An end, the end is come upon the four corners of the land.
Now the end has come upon thee,
And I will send mine anger upon thee;
And will judge thee according to thy ways,
And will recompense upon thee all thine abominations.
And mine eye shall not spare thee,
Neither will I have pity;
But I will recompense thy ways upon thee:
And thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee;
And ye shall know that I am the Lord!”
Destruction falls upon the evil seeking to destroy me
And consumes them with God’s wrath.
The King has led the battle with His soldiers behind.
The warriors have followed the right path.
Celebration spreads throughout the city of eternity,
As the trumpet announces victory for all.
With the war over and the King on the throne
They’ll never be another soul to fall.
