Infinite, infinite, all-consuming, overwhelming, infinite BLACK
somehow piercing the black
a pinprick.........a pinpoint....
one singular microscopic point
of the most intense white light ever known
and the physical terror
of all that VAST ENDLESS NOTHINGNESS
PUSHINGbut with no physical force
that tiny pinprick of light
and the LIGHT
all the more INTENSE
in its tininess
pushing against the INFINITE
like a SILENT SCREAM
that's usually when I wake up.....
Someone wrote me these words one day. This person does not believe in God. The bible addresses darkness and light in numerous verses. Answers are there for ALL of us. We have to be willing to look for them and accept the truth when it hits us....OUCH! (myself included as I have been hit with truth too many times to count)

"You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him."
