New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 19, 1993, New Braunfels, Texas
FRIDAY, MARCH 19. 1093 HERALD-ZEITUNG 8Comfort from your darkest fears can always be found
His sleepy feet brushed the carpet quietly until they rested at the end of our bed. It was 5:30 am., and I had been lying awake since five.
"I had a dream.”
In the language of a child those words speak volumes to a parent.
My boy was scared. A nightmare had violated his sleep. You have said enough, Joseph. I know what to do.
In a moment, I had the comforter made into a little next on the side of the bed and Joseph tucked in within arms reach and out of night fright’s way.
He was never fully awake, and sleep would come quickly to my little one whose dream shooed him to Mom and Dad's room.
The comforter enveloped him like a sort of teddy bear cave. Like an out of focus photograph, his words drifted sleepily into the dark.
Daddy, when will it be morning?”
It would be nice if the only kind of darkness that we faced Was the physical darkness each day brings. Darkness does not obey
Dennis J. our boundaries, though.
With all the comforts of Mom and Dad's room, the real answer to the darkness was the morning. Joseph waited for daybreak.
We are not supposed to be afraid of the dark. More than one closet gets closed in a bedroom at night — after all, you never know what's hiding in there.
And more than one bed gets looked under — monsters, you know. The only thing that really cures the night is morning. The new light of the day expels the
terrors and exhales life and color into the grays of the darkness. The night has passed, and with it, the fears and dreams that darkness breeds.
It's a new day. The night has passed. Gloiy.
It would be nice if the only kind of darkness that we faced was the physical darkness cadi day brings. Darkness does not obey our boundaries, though.
In fact, the two results of darkness, fear and out of control terror, affect many mature and balanced adults.
Fears reach behind us, opening closets of the past we were sure were locked and baned long ago. The rogues accuse
us of faults and misbehavior and assures us that surely they have returned in shadows to haunt us again.
Darkness is when we are convinced of failure before we begin a task.
Darkness is the out of control habit we hate and hide. No one will understand.
Darkness is the fear of intimacy. We have been hurt, really hurt, and never will it happen again.
Darkness produces terror that paralyzes.
In the nightmare of conflict and turmoil life cannot be resolved. It is the worst sort of fear and hopeless thinking. And an
epidemic of folks, churched and unchurched alike, live lives that are characterized with this sort of fear.
That is why one of the most oft repeated sentences in the bible is Dear not.”
Often said by Jesus himself, it is repeated over 80 times to individuals and nations, children and adults, men and women.
Dear not, I am with you,” said the Lord at the most critical and fear-filled moments in history. And He still repeats it if we have a mind and a heart to hear. Because He came to dispel the fear, yours and mine.
Take a moment and listen. Let it pierce the darkness of terror and fear.
Fear not Ifs a new day. The night has passed, doty.
