The other day I woke up early and went outside to watch the sunrise. It was so peaceful sitting there talking with “Papa”. Such beauty He has made all around us, revealing himself to us in so many ways! I was struck once again with the truth of how light dispels darkness as I watched the sun’s rays slowly drive the clouds of night away. The sun eventually showed itself! All the clouds gradually disappeared. In the same way, Jesus the “Son” is able to break through the darkness that surrounds us (and our child)! The brightness of God’s Presence penetrates the darkness and brings His light. What was once black becomes lighter – the sky very slowly turned grey, gradually lightening until finally the blue skies broke through. Clouds parted, seemed to evaporate, vanishing right before my eyes. Sometimes other colors could be seen – pink, lavender, other shades of blue.
I had to wait patiently and trust that morning’s light would come. And it did. It may be night – the blackest of nights – in your life right now, but morning IS coming! Dawn is almost here! Don’t give up if the night feels long and endless. Morning WILL come.
WAIT FOR IT – but I urge you to wait with hope, even though you may not see any reason for it right now!
“Wait (trust, hope, have faith in) for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” (Ps. 27:14)
“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope.” (Ps. 130:5)
