Colossians 1:13-14 says that God "has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."
This is the darkness from which He saved me:
A hurricane of emotion assaulted me today. A cyclone of torment swept me away. I ventured from safety & dared to step outside. I was vulnerable, exposed and bare before all eyes.
Clouds of rejection came rolling in. Showers of "un" pelted my skin.
Unwanted, unloved, unworthy, despised.
