ISAIAH 50:10-11

I pray and NOTHING. No response. No emotion. No light.
Emotionally feeling lost. What did I do? How did I get to this place?

We had such warm fellowship. The mountain top. Your sunlight.
I felt like a world conqueror. You and me together Lord.

Every step I took every move I made You were there. Guiding. Shining.
Walking me through the mess of my life. Assuring me we were going in the right direction.

I woke up today. No one was there. I felt myself alone. How would I face the world.
There was a bottle I lived in. There was a drug of choice. It helped me face the world.
It destroyed me. Pushed me one step closer to death. It enabled me to face the darkness.
Now I’m not sure. You were with me. A bright light showing my future. Now dark. Nothing.

Your call to me: man of faith, keep walking. My child, learn to walk in the darkness.
One foot in front of the other. One day at a time. Keep praying. Don’t wait on the light.
Life is for living. You’ve got this. Keep walking. Keep praying. Don’t wait on the light.
Life is happening. Get with it. You can hear me, based on what I said. Keep praying.

Do the next right thing. Darkness all about, just keep walking. Your life counts.
It’s important that you understand this is a test. A test of you. Keep walking.

Obedience is better than sacrifice. My Word to you. Keep obeying. You know what to do.
Trust in the process. Jesus is Lord. Trust in Jesus. He will see you thru the dark night.

Do not light your own fire to see your way. Trust me. Walk in obedience.
The darkness will equip you to see Jesus even better. He is the light.
Our relationship isn’t an emotional high. It’s reality. Jesus is the way. He is the light.
Keep focused on Him. Get to know Him better. Read the Word. Pray. Walk.

In the darkness lean on Jesus. Now is the time to study His Word.
Claim all the promises you can find. There are 7,000 plus promises in the Bible.
Trust God no matter what. Do not turn to your old ways. Don’t try to be independent.
Jesus is God’s everything and He is here for you.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding.
Jesus is the light, follow Him. Pray. Search God’s Word. Keep on walking.
