Nightfall

By Richard Nana Yaw Otwey • October 6, 2015

When I was younger, I liked to play till it was late. One day I went to play with a friend. We watched the sun go down and night took its position. The transition was so smooth I almost missed it. Walking down an eerie path back home, fear begun to creep in. My friend had left me, it was dark so soon and I did not know what to do. It felt like a dream, but one thing that kept me moving was the moon and stars' light. I said to myself that God was giving me a torchlight which meant he was watching so I wasn't afraid anymore. Although I took a beating of a life time for staying out late, I was glad I got home safe.

In life, the transition of good times into the dark times when everything is messed up, when life challenges are so difficult you can smell failure all around you is so smooth if you are not attentive enough, you will be stunned. If dark times catch up with up you and there is no friend to turn to, remember what Fyodor Dosteyevsky said, that, "The darker the night, the brighter the star. The deeper the grief, the closer God is."

Don't give up. Have faith and believe that God is close, and He is watching. All you ought to do is to look up and call to him. (Jerm 33:3). Toughing up and press on, your success is not far from you. God bless you.
