“The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I am always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart.”
Cosmic Love, Florence and the Machine

“Jesus entered a private olive grove called Gethsemene. There was no light beneath these ancient trees, whose trunks were great twists of shadow. Jesus moved by memory. As he walked, breathing became difficult for him. His legs felt numb and heavy. “My soul, he groaned.
My soul I sorrowful. Even unto death.”
The Book of God; The Bible as a Novel, Walter Wangerin, p784

“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
Psalm 22:1, NIV (quoted by Jesus on the cross)

“I took the stars from my eyes, and then I made a map. And knew that somehow I could find my way back. Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too. So I stayed in the darkness with you.”
Cosmic Love, Florence and the Machine

“It guided me and shone
Surer than noonday sunlight over me,
And lead me to the one
Whom only I could see
Deep in a place where only we could be.”
The Dark Night of the Soul, St. John of the Cross

“Listen to me, you islands; hear this, you distant nations: Before I was born the Lord called me; from my mother s womb he has spoken my name.”
God s Servant in Isaiah 49:1, NIV
