An orchid that unfurls at night and loses its flowers by day has been found near Papua New Guinea. Flowers that do that are found only in a few remarkable plant species. Similarly, dark times come to our lives. We wonder why, and sometimes blame God. If instead we would turn to Him for comfort, He could make a beautiful flower unfurl in the night darkness of our lives. Perhaps today you are going through a dark time in your life. You’ve lost someone dear to you, or you’ve had a bitter disappointment. Jesus promised, “He that follows me shall not walk in darkness.” And He invites us, in those dark times, “Come to me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Yes, Jesus can turn our darkness into light.
