Is Your World Too Dark? (Plus, my husband recites his favorite Bible verse!)

Even when I was in the midst of depression, I loved the verses that spoke about light and life because of the optimism they offered.

Psalm 18:28 (NIV)
You, Lord, keep my lamp burning;
    my God turns my darkness into light.

Psalm 18:28 (Amplified Bible) For meditation purposes.
 For You cause my lamp to be lighted and to shine; 
the Lord my God illumines my darkness.

As we continue in our endeavor to memorize and/or meditate on some of my favorite verses from Psalm 18, keep in mind David wrote this Psalm after God delivered him from a long, hard (often discouraging) time in his life.

What about you? (Share your answers to any of these questions, via the comment link below. You may use a pseudonym.)

  • Do you feel as if you’re walking in spiritual or emotional darkness?
  • If so, would you consider memorizing and/or meditating on this verse every day this week?
  • Have you experienced a time when God “turned your darkness into light?”
  • How has God’s Word kept your lamp burning and shining?

This week, “my featured guest” is Bert. B. Boldt, II (my husband!), reciting his favorite Bible verse.

Please send me videos of you or your little ones reciting any Bible verse. If you’d like, give a short testimony of why you love the verse. (You can record from your Smartphone or other device and email me the video. Or, if you know how, please upload the video to YouTube and send me the link! Click on the About tab to find my email address.)

And don’t forget to share your comments asked in the “What About You?” section.


  1. Well, cyberspace is strange. I know I was just here about an hour ago and commented on this video... unless I was in another dimension? Lets play like I didn't just say that okay?

    Anyway, I love Bert's video! And I loved seeing the two of you interacting together. Y'all are such an adorable couple. I like the video idea. :)

  2. Thank you, Barbara. I love Bert's sincere and genuine appreciation for what God has done for us. (I have to admit: I've watched the video many times! I love seeing my husband in this way.)

    Oh, and by the way, I like the video idea, too! Thank YOU for suggesting it!

  3. I really enjoyed Bert's video. It is a very powerful thing watching a man stand up and proclaim Christ publicly. We really need male leaders.

  4. I would love to hear from those of you who have experienced (or are now experiencing) deep emotional or spiritual darkness. You may use pseudonyms when responding to the questions in the "What about you?" section. (Click on the "About" tab to read part of my story.)
