THE DARKNESS….

candle 1

John 1:5

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Kuukua sat alone in the corner of the library. She wasn’t a known face there since she had never made it a habit to come to the library. Lately, however, she realized it was the only place she had peace from the torture of her new life since her friends never ceased taunting.

She sighed loudly and froze, she wasn’t supposed to make so much noise in the library. Even with the few people in the section of the library she was at, she could feel their eyes bore into her skin. Her own eyes remained glued to the book in front of her whose title or content she knew nothing of. She had just grabbed it off the shelf while walking to her special corner. She didn’t want to look unserious.

Kuukua stifled another heavy sigh. Was this how it was meant to be and would it continue forever? Shaking her head, she flipped the page of her unknown book. It seemed even the once peaceful silence of the library was literally strangling her today but she had no where else to go, no place to hide, from the piercing eyes of her friends. She had even began having doubts about this new life.

Hmm…her new life o! That was the cause of all this. Her friends just couldn’t come to terms with the fact that almighty Kuukua had changed. No o….Actually changed. Just like that?! Weren’t they all taught somewhere in school that change was a gradual process so where did Kuukua’s supposed change fit in.

At first they thought someone close to her had died, then they thought she must have been pregnant and it was too far off to abort so she was worried sick, then they thought her new rich boyfriend might have caught her cheating with one of her innumerable campus boyfriends and so had dumped, they kept thinking, kept asking but she told them it was none of all they thought. They were confused.

Kuukua didn’t go for parties anymore, she ACTUALLY went for lectures and was on time, she had stopped dressing seductively, she did her assignments herself -well she tried to, she didn’t find their crude jokes funny anymore, she barely touched alcohol lately… The list was endless!!! And worst of all-she read the Bible and went to church!!!

Tweeeaaa!!! Kuuks bebe, as they affectionately called her, of all people went to church now o. Jesus surely must be returning soon, they reasoned. Someone who had a reputation of greeting anyone, who came to the room to evangelize, with a bucket of water! How could this be?!

Kuukua was confused. After her friends found about her new love for Jesus Christ, they kept asking, kept teasing, kept laughing at her and it hurt real bad. Her new Christian friends tried to keep encouraging her on but she knew they didn’t truly understand what was going on with her. They just saw surface stuff.

She signed heavily again, she didn’t care if the other students stared hard at her again. She honestly didn’t care anymore, they could go burn the see if they were so annoyed with her sighing. They didn’t know the thoughts that run through her head. Just then two verse she had chanced on earliar in the week came to mind-she couldn’t remember which exact part of the Bible they came from though.

‘And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.’

‘Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.’

It hit her! Right in the heart. At that very moment she realized one thing. Her friends would never understand her or comprehend her new life. The darkness comprehended not the light. Once those friends of hers were still in the dark they will never understand her since she was now in the light and had the very light as her one true love.

She felt such peace. She wasn’t going to bother her head anymore trying to please them, she was going to live as directed by the Holy Spirit and no one could stop her. She was excited. She wanted to jump and scream at the revelation.

Maybe like Kuukua, you may have been teased or everything took a nose dive in your life after you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal savior. Don’t be moved, don’t be shaken, keep trusting Him and know this.

The Darkness can never understand,comprehend, appreciate the light.

Be light man/woman!

You are blessed.

  1. Hello Priscilla!
    Calvary greetings to you in the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    (I know this is the most inappropriate means of connecting with you…but this is the avenue I could find. Please forgive me.)

    I thank God for your life and the awesome work you are doing on your blog!
    I pray for more wisdom, grace and strength for you in Jesus name!

    My name (in short) is Tim and I am the founder of the newly unveiled Christian Social Community: http://www.rhemalog.com

    If I may crave your indulgence, I will quickly like to intimate you on our purpose, goals and objectives.

    The name Rhemalog is a compound word, coined from both “Rhema” and “Log”.
    It means, putting into writing(Log), your encounters in the Word of God(Rhema).
    That is, sharing with the beloved, the things that God has shown unto you in His Word.

    Rhemalog was established by the leading of the Holy Spirit, as a platform to enrich and impact the body of Christ all over the World!

    You will agree with me that there is a lot of degradation going on.
    Abuse, spiritual contaminations, mental pollutions and attacks on our faith.

    All you need is to refresh your social-media pages long enough…then boom!
    There you have it, in your face!
    But.
    Wouldnt it be awesome to have a sanctified environment?

    A platform built solely for the Children of God.
    Devoid of negativity around us, but filled with inspirations, encouragements and above all, the WORD OF GOD!

    A breath of fresh air.
    Family friendly, conducive, loving and embracing.
    Your own family of fellow brethren, encouraging, building, cheering on and strengthening each other on a daily basis!

    This is our driving force.
    The clarion call that moved us to put Rhemalog in place.

    And this is our call to you: Would you like to join us?

    As one of the (Christian) thinkers and opinion-makers out there, logically, it is a no-brainer that we need you, especially since our main goal is to ensure that the people are well fed.

    We need your insightful thoughts. Inspirational ideas. Well written pieces. We need YOU!

    We need you, not only as a member, but also as an A-List contributor.

    And we already have all the tools required.

    – As an early adopter, you will be a part of a huge and influential community at its infant stage.

    – Your community page will be featured, if you create one. Meaning, it will come up first in searches and views (with its own cute ribbon)

    – You can host all your youtube and vimeo videos, thereby increasing your viewer-ship and enhancing your reach.

    Well, “gold and silver” we have not.
    But can you help us be a blessing to the children of God out there?

    It will be a huge honour and we will be waiting for you.

    The first step is to be registered. Duration of your submissions will be totally up to you. To keep up though, we would suggest you begin by sharing the links to your blog posts, later on, you can start doing reblogs or creating unique postings using our blog feature.

    However, in-between, we would love your quips, wits, quotes and words of wisdom, posted on your homepage timeline. We consider these to be quick tonic for the soul…snacks for those in hurried need of inspiration and motivations.

    Whichever option you choose, we cannot wait to have a drink from the fountain of your God-given wisdom.

    Thanks and may God continually keep His face shining on you.

    Yours in Christ,

    Tim (Rhemalog Community)
