I am very excited to have Michael Perkins as a guest writer today! Michael’s blogs was one of the first I found on WordPress, and I have enjoyed reading his posts ever since. He has a refreshingly unique style, and I never leave his blog without feeling I have gained something of value-whether that be encouragement, something to think about, or a new perspective. You can check out that blog at www.theperkinsblog.net.
And now, please join me in welcoming Mr. Perkins!
Afraid of the Dark
by Michael Perkins
I know that isn’t something that a grown man should be afraid of, but I can’t help it.
It’s so bad that I won’t take the trash out after dark. And if by chance I have to go out in the dark, I take a flashlight with me.
Being able to see my next step makes me feel safe.
The dark is the great unknown.
Often times we come to points in our lives where we have to step out in faith into the unknown. But we hesitate because we cannot see what is out there. We don’t know what’s next.
But as long as we carry a Flashlight we will see the next step. We may not see the whole journey, but we’ll see the next step. Which is good enough for me.
The next time you are going into the unknown take your Flashlight.
Are you afraid of the dark?
