Darkness has not overcome

John 1:5 (ESV)
"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."

Some much needed perspective: Even if there is darkness there is also light. Recently I shared a sense of loss of faith in humanity in light of the Vanier scandal and life in general. Yet at the same time I have also shared thoughts on original goodness, the divine image. Effectively that of God within us and around us. In truth we need only open our eyes.

I recently watched the New Amsterdam season 1 finale (warning: graphic accident and spoiler in video). The monologue actually spoke into some of my downcast feelings of late.

A song from years ago also came to mind, Outrageous Grace by Robin Mark. The words are powerful.

If you feel your faith in humanity fail, put your faith in God. His light never goes out.
