One of the words that stuck with me during army was during one Campus service about the Dark room. The dark room was where film was kept so that it could be processed, and the image developed through an intricate and drawn-out process. Any light entering the room prematurely would destroy the film. Sometimes that’s what army may feel like. A dark bunk, a dark jungle, or just a dark place. But here’s 3 handles to hold on to:
1. Waiting in the dark room
There is comfort to know that even in the dark room, God is doing a work in you. The physical circumstances, the routine, the constant grind may not show it, but He is moving in the Spirit. If you feel like you haven’t been faithful, then its ok because God is faithful.
2. God in the dark room
In the waiting, you are not alone, God is in the room. If the film being developed represents us, then God is the master in the room developing the film. He is with you as you do the push ups, staying up late nights, doing weekend duties or listening to the encik as he repeat his story for the 10,000th time when he commando-ed into SQ117 hijacked plane.
3. The beautiful picture
If you haven’t heard before, you are God’s masterpiece (Eph 2:10) and He is committed into developing you into His beautiful image(pun intended). You can’t see the image while you’re in the process. But after the process, it is a beautiful picture of His faithfulness and goodness that says “God, you were always there.” #campusrelevance
