When you go through a dark valley, when you struggle to find any joy, peace or light, and when you feel so alone, may the following story by a six year old be good news to you.

Max Lucado says, “When my daughter Jenna was six years old, I came upon her standing in front of a full-length mirror. She was looking down her throat.  I asked her what she was doing and she answered, ‘I’m looking to see if God is in my heart.’”

Max says that he chuckled and turned and then overheard her ask him, “Are you in there?” When no answer came, she grew impatient and spoke on his behalf.  With a voice deepened as much as a six-year-old can, she said, “Yes.”

John 14:16-17 assures us that “God lives with you and will be in you.”

So in the dark times, remember that God is, in some mysterious way, living in you. You are not alone.  God is there!
