There cannot be total darkness if there is any degree of light present.
Want to scratch the surface for hope? John 8:12- Then Jesus spoke to them saying, ” I am the light of the world: he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.” (ESV)
The word light is a metaphor for growing our faith. Where there is light there is hope.
