"We have never been called to define God, we have been called to behold Him." - Abraham Joshua Heschel

Sorrow - Joy

Darkness - Light

Selfishness - Love

Polar opposites yet, would I be able to recognize one without the other?

Would I yearn for joy and strive to love if I did not know what it felt like for darkness to fall unexpected, to take hold, to consume and control, to engulf me?

Would I seek God with all I am if I did not know what it felt like to feel like He had withdrawn, forgotten me, grown tired of my struggles?

He has not - withdrawn, forgotten - but sometimes those feelings can be all-encompassing, drowning out the truth that longs to fill my soul with peace.
