There is a line from a Garth Brooks song ” we all come in saying Gettie Up and we all go out saying Woa”. Now lest we forget Jesus did check with the father to see if there was an alternative time-line but death and darkness was waiting for him. The key however is in another phrase Jesus speaks when he says “no man takes my life but I give it willingly.” Time-lines are a Father thing but willing choices are a man thing and in this, we have the chance to enter in to this Life, Death and Resurrection process. Lets face it we hate the death of anything in our lives and if it’s a good thing we fight it even more the Darkness we do not know. How much easier would our Spiritual Journeys be if we willingly died instead of being brought kicking and screaming into every transformation? So what’s the problem you ask, well because you asked I will venture a quess, “Fear of the Dark” plan and simple. Although there is no Darkness in God for “God is Light” none the less This God who is Light is very often found in The Darkness. Darkness when ventured into willing with complete surrender and trust, is in fact the place where Resurrection Life flows from. This is the wonderful picture of the tomb where Jesus was laid to rest, it is a place of peace where all work comes to an end. All that is left to do is wait upon the Spirit of the Most High God to resurrect you from your rest from struggle. Darkness is the place you willingly commit your body & soul, as your spirit sores to God the Father. Then a divine reuniting and the dawning of a New Day but you must wait for it, remain still in the cool of the dark for no harm shall come to you, for you have sown in faith. There is a Ghost who shall come to meet you in this Dark place, that’s right I said a Ghost, The Holy Ghost that is, so there is no need to Fear the Dark for the light of God shines out of a dark Place.
