The dark is scary. It is really hard to see in the dark. When we are in the dark, we don't function very efficiently. Then why are we so drawn to the darkness? What leads us to darkness and not to the light? Sure, the light can be blinding and it is hot but it also allows us to see better. And that is why we may be drawn to the dark. We don't want to see something about ourselves. We don't want to see something that is not good but we don't want to get rid of it. The darkness hides things, including the things in our life that we are not proud of but that we don't want to remove from our lives.
Lord, help me to not be scared of the dark but scared enough of those things in the dark that I may remove them from my life.
