“And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.” (Isa. 42:16)
I am writing this article at the beginning of December 2012 and as I believe many things could happen before the end of the year I am writing as I know them to be now. We are soon beginning a new year and the world does seem like a very dark place in so many ways. There are many bright spots of course and even in this fallen world God has blessed us with many things to be thankful for. Unfortunately though, there is much darkness, like the darkness before the dawn, we know this will be the case before the Lord’s return.
