What Happens to God in the Dark?

Where does God go when night descends upon the soul?

Where does the Light hide when Darkness surrounds?

What happens to God in the dark?

 

Where is God when hearts cry and souls weep?

Where is God when words, once packed with meaning in the day, disintegrate at night?

What happens to God in the dark?

 

Where is God when doubts bombard and questions taunt?

Where is God when the Tempter hisses and Sin’s glamour glows?

What happens to God in the Dark?

 

Where is God when pillows are drowning in our tears at night?

Where is God when arms are empty and loved ones are gone?

What happens to God in the dark?

 

Where is God when children go hungry and babies die?

Where is God when bad men hurt innocents and war rages on?

What happens to God in the dark?

 

Psalm 139:7-12

Where shall I go from your Spirit?
    Or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
    If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
If I take the wings of the morning
    and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 even there your hand shall lead me,
    and your right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,
    and the light about me be night,”
12 even the darkness is not dark to you;
    the night is bright as the day,
    for darkness is as light with you.
