Good Morning, Blogger Friends:
April 25th, 2012 Here we are still in the mountains! The last couple of days we have been having "dogwood winter". Brrr! Windy, rainy, yes, and even snow flurries! Miserable to say the least! There were a few bright spots when the sun would come peeping out for a few minutes. When it did, it changed the whole picture! My husband had been working outside and had come in because the weather had turned nasty once again! As soon as he got in and got settled in his chair, the sun came back out!
I was reminded of how it is in our lives sometimes. We just can't figure it out. Things are happening that seem out of order. This shouldn't be happening today, we think. It is hard to understand! It's raining, snowing, blowing cold when we were hoping for sunshine, warmth and comfort! Then without knowing why or how, it changes back again! In times like these for me, the SON is what makes the difference! I like that little song.. "I have a light, and it always shines..it shines in the day and it shines in the night.. and when the dark days come, I will be shining for I have a light! That Light is Jesus and He lights up all of my dark days!
My prayer today is for those of you out there who may be experiencing an uncomfortable day. I pray that you will be able to access the Sonlight of Jesus to bring warmth and comfort to your day. I pray that you will know that that this too shall pass and that the Son is not gone, but only behind a cloud for now and hidden from your view. Isaiah 60:1-3 says "Arise, shine; for your Light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. Others will be able to come to your light and even king's to the brightness of your rising!" Even a little light will overcome a great deal of darkness; but darkness cannot overcome even a little light!
May the Son be shining into your world today to change the whole picture for you and perhaps even encourage someone else around you!
