Dear God, show us the road
that you have chosen for us,
and give us the courage
to walk down it... Amen

darkness into light...

The Lord says, "I will lead the blind by a road they do not know . . . . I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. . . . and I will not forsake them."
Our weekend travels led us to The Lost Sea in Sweetwater. Now, if you're a cave fan, or not, this is a visit I recommend to everyone. It's phenominal, amazing, unbelieveable formations... As I was gazing at the ceiling, I couldn't grasp the reality of this creation. We can't...take it in...imagine all the wonders that have yet to be found, and those we are blessed with each day. All created by His hand. This underground lake, second largest in the world, is right here in Tennessee. Although the cave itself had been discovered and used many years prior by the Cherokee Indians, and during the Civil War the Confederate Army mined the cave for saltpeter. The story of how the lake was found is quite interesting. If you go here, you can read the history. While inside the cave, the "cave guide" has everyone sit down, and he turns off the lights. This is total darkness, so dark, that if you were to stay in the cave for two weeks, you would begin to lose your sight. This is what life would be like without the Father...complete, total darkness. It scared me as I thought of life this way. We choose to live in the dark, or live in the light. There are days, when life hurts, feels dark, but God will bring you light.

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
2 Corinthians 6:14

Just a few pictures of the cave.
