“There, peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tower high up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while. The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King
There are some things ‘Mordor’ can’t touch—all darkness is fleeting. From everlasting to everlasting the star will shine in all its beauty. And us with Him.
His love endures forever.
Now that’s hope.
One thought on “Beyond the Reach of Darkness”
Jay, you have this habit of lifting my hopes up just when I’m most fatigued. Thank you for reminding me He is from forever to forever. We’re at a month here at fire camp running a medical trailer to help the fire fighters. Long hard hours but an opportunity to testify about what Jesus has done for me. ~ Donna Day, RN, Servant of God
