In Darkness, A Light Still Shines

Book Cover - In Darkness A Light Still ShinesThis 52-week devotional book is based on Barry's past 26 years of service at the Topeka Rescue Mission. As you open the pages to embark on the journey before you, may you come to the assurance of knowing that… … even in darkness, a light still shines.

"In Darkness, a Light Still Shines" – 52 Stories of Hope – Gleaned from the Homeless, Poor, and those who Care for Them

It is no secret that hopelessness and despair have emerged in our world to a staggering degree. Broken relationships, financial uncertainties, and seemingly impossible situations are plaguing multitudes tempting them to give up on life. These writings are an attempt to offer hope in the midst of the darkness so prevalent in our world today.

The challenges surrounding each one of the 52 short stories included in this book have been immense; yet the way God has brought treasure and light out of the darkness faced is astonishing. While your life is unique and it sometimes feels as though there is no way out from the overwhelming circumstances you face, there really is always hope. There is not one situation you can experience that will ever be too difficult for God. Regardless of how intense, the darkness can never fully extinguish the light that eternally shines (John 1:5). As you open the pages to embark on the journey before you, may you come to the assurance of knowing that… … even in darkness, a light still shines.
