What Dark Can’t Do to Light
—Grace & Truth Linkup

Donna’s work exposes her to the underbelly of life. She often sees the bad things, the hard things, that we humans can do to each other.

In our featured post this week, Donna sits us in a courthouse hallway with her, awaiting her turn to advocate for a child.

But even in the worst of the worst situations, she still finds hope. She seeks for it.

Donna finds it in the light that God shines in the dark.

She reminds us of the apostle John’s words:

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
John 1:5

Donna took a deep dive in the Greek word “overcome” in this verse.

And she saw what the darkness has NOT done.

The darkness has not overcome the light.

“Christ, the Light John speaks of in John 1:5, not only defeats darkness, He ensures the dark forces of sin and evil are powerless to ever apprehend Him and therefore His own.”
