I came across the Ralph Waldo Emerson quote below and it made me think about how much I fill my life with things that distract me away from God. Sometimes God has to clear the clutter and all the pretty lights so I can see the hope I can only find through Him. All those lights and distractions keep us from realizing there is hope in the darkness. “When it is dark enough, we can see the stars.” And in the case of the believer, who has a relationship with the creator of those stars, there is hope in the darkness.
