Out of the Darkness? or not?

I ran across a fascinating book title the other day: The Light Belongs In the Darkness by Patricia King. It grabbed my attention, because it seemed so wrong to me-- light and darkness do not co-exist. Light forces darkness out, it drives the darkness away.

God spoke to me through that title. No, I didn't hear a voice in my head. It just seemed clear to me, almost as if the thought was spoken aloud: "There is your answer to the question you always ask: Why did God send a depressed person to Alaska to live in darkness?"

I belong here, because my light was meant to shine brighter in the darkness.
