Into the Darkness You Shine
This testimony of renewal is written by a beautiful girl in our INNsight Program for young adults. She is finding freedom in Christ, and in wholeness she is enrolling in college. God provided a job for her during her program that was a perfect fit for her talents and interests. She was surrounded by people who loved her while she worked and people who loved her when she was here with us. We are cheering her on as she sprints to the finish line of her program. In Him, all things are new!
“Into the darkness You shine. Out of the ashes we rise. There’s no one like You.” This song describes my story exactly. I was trying to be a Christian for a long time but remained broken inside because until I came to The Inn I wouldn’t allow God’s Word to shine into those dark places inside of me. Once the light of Christ shined in, this burnout deadbeat who went to church on Sunday and chased the next high on Monday began to rise from the ashes as a brand new creation to be set on fire in a new way, a heavenly way, and with a fire that will not run out. Oh, there is no one like Him! There is no one else who could take someone like me, corrupt in all my ways and turn me into a pure and righteous child of God. I’ve been redeemed by the blood of Jesus.”
