"You have caused my beloved and my friend to shun me;
Darkness has become my friend."-Psalm 8:18 Sons of Korah
The so-called Christian radio station here in Baltimore, has a slogan: "WE are the positive radio station."
Very sad they have gone this way, and all the pop-Christian music is likewise shallow and plastic, with positive, and self-centered focused music. Sad. And there surely is positive things in our lives as Christians, but the full truth of God, is that we will suffer and have periods of Darkness in our lives.
Some will have great darkness, so that they even despair of life, and wish they were dead.
here's a song by a secular group, The Police, that really gives us humans something to think about, and we we need to think deeply, always with God's Word of course as the final authority.
"I can dream up schemes when I'm sitting in my seat
I don't see any flaws till I get to my feet
I wish I never woke up this morning
Life was easy when it was boring "-Stewart Copeland

"The love of the Lord."—Hosea 3:1."BELIEVER, look back through all thine experience, and think of the way whereby the Lord thy God has led thee in the wilderness, and how He hath fed and clothed thee every day—how He hath borne with thine ill manners—how He hath put up with all thy murmurings, and all thy longings after the flesh-pots of Egypt—how He has opened the rock to supply thee, and fed thee with manna that came down from heaven. Think of how His grace has been sufficient for thee in all thy troubles—how His blood has been a pardon to thee in all thy sins—how His rod and His staff have comforted thee.
When thou hast thus looked back upon the love of the Lord, then let faith survey His love in the future, for remember that Christ's covenant and blood have something more in them than the past. He who has loved thee and pardoned thee, shall never cease to love and pardon. He is Alpha, and He shall be Omega also: He is first, and He shall be last.
Therefore, bethink thee, when thou shalt pass through the valley of the shadow of death, thou needest fear no evil, for He is with thee. When thou shalt stand in the cold floods of Jordan, thou needest not fear, for death cannot separate thee from His love; and when thou shalt come into the mysteries of eternity thou needest not tremble, "For I am persuaded, that neither death; nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Now, soul, is not thy love refreshed?
Does not this make thee love Jesus? Doth not a flight through illimitable plains of the ether of love inflame thy heart and compel thee to delight thyself in the Lord thy God? Surely as we meditate on "the love of the Lord," our hearts burn within us, and we long to love Him more."--Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Here's a guy who has a great testimony of how Christ Jesus saved his dead soul. he still goes out and shares his old music, and he also does some "God Rock", as he calls it.
He truly loves Jesus now, and overcomes by the Blood as we all do, and his testimony.
Lord bless mark and keep him serving and preaching the Gospel. Amen.
I saw him perform many moons ago at Westminster HS, here in Maryland. he was great. He's a good brother in Christ.
