“Darkness comes into our life in two ways. Sometimes we choose darkness; and sometimes it chooses us” — Joyce Rupp
All too often we feel overwhelmed by life, unable to rise above our fears and weaknesses. Yet it is within our darkest hour that the light of our finest hour begins to shine.
Joyce Rupp, whose books and talks have offered valuable insight into dealing with transitional times, explores darkness as a gift and the process of transformation that takes us into the light. She defines the dark moments in our life—death, illness, depression, addiction, broken relationships, and personal flaws—and shares powerful images of transformation that help the listener shed the darkness and grow in the light. She offers a reminder that no matter how dark it gets, God will not desert us. Rupp illustrates the necessity for darkness, such as Jesus spending three days in the tomb before his resurrection, but shows that light always finds a way in.
