Your wounds I will heal - (Jer. 30:17)
Trust illuminates every shadow
Such is the nature of man - unless we know darkness we cannot know light, unless we know sorrow we cannot know joy, unless we know pain we cannot know healing. We have been given freedom of choice. It is a realm that our heavenly Father desires that we fulfil on His behalf.
God's presence overcomes all the difficulties we experience on this plane of consciousness we call our world, but we must prove it. We are sent to do His works during the days we spend on earth. So turn from introspection to the world around you in the knowledge that it is a place prepared for you, that wherever you go you shine His light and dispel darkness, that it contains nothing that can harm you while you place your trust in Him.
If now you experience lack or are downcast or ill, do not fight it. Instead, in mind and heart identify yourself with Him in Whom are no shadows. See yourself carrying His light. Then, in trust, depart your dark place. Go forth and claim His healing by living it. This is what God wants you to do.
