“This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5
God is white light. Not a beacon in the distance. When you are close to him the light is so blinding you can see no other.
Yet we allow ourselves for some reason to grope around in the darkness. For the sinner but saved, there can be a temporary, ill-conceived, unwise separation, with the correction coming from a simple step back into the light.
For those who know him, the desire should always be to bask in the light of his glory!
Some good verses shedding light on this subject.

“The eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is clear, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is bad, your body also is full of darkness.” Luke 11:34
“For you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light.” Ephesians 5:8
“Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.” James 1:17
