The LORD gave me what I had, and the LORD has taken it away (Job 1:21; NLT).

He has plunged my path into darkness (Job 19:8; NLT).

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me (Psalm 23:4; NIV).

And I will give you treasures hidden in darkness (Isaiah 45:3; NLT).

Darkness is my closest friend (Psalm 88:18; NLT).

You gave me what I had,
Then took it away –
Plunging my path
Into darkness.

I’m terrified –
Even though
You’re with me
All the way.

Help me to walk courageously,
Discovering along the way
The unexpected treasures
Hidden here;

For then,
In time,
This darkness will become
My closest friend.
