Dark Places

We all love scrolling our favorite social media platform.  They’re usual full  of happy posts and pictures from our friends and family.  They can fill us with excitement and joy for those we love and care about.  However, unlike our social feeds, life is not always happy and joyful.  Many of us struggle with the dark places in our minds and thoughts.  We don’t like to talk about our dark places but they are there, nevertheless.  What we often don’t realize is that we all have these dark places.  While they are different for each person, we all struggle them on some level of another.  Even our biblical heroes!  This week, as we continue our study through 1 Samuel, we see David in his own dark place and we learn several truths about these dark times in our lives and several truths about how to start climbing out of them.
