Sometimes we look around and wonder: Is it making any difference? Am I running in place? Are you running with me Jesus? That moment is a chance to pause – it may be more than a pause, a long night, a dark season. Here, Jesus’ words catch up: “Have no fear, what you hear in the dark, tell in the light; the hairs of your head are all counted, you are of much value.” In that still darkness, I can perceive again the loving gaze of the Father, the stirring power of the Spirit, and Brother Jesus’ hand grabs mine and leads me on.
