Though surrounded by darkness, we have hope. Hope that darkness does not overpower Light.
The Light shines on.
Meditate on this reality:
Darkness has not, cannot, and will never…
Put out (MSG)
In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men. And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it].
John 1:4-5 AMPC
