The rain and wind banged against the window screen, water droplets running down the pane like rivulets of tears. The late winter morning was cold and wet. She tightly wrapped the sweater around her, hoping to keep out the chill. Spring was almost here, but not quite. Winter’s icy grip was not yet ready to let go and usher in warmer days. She looked out the kitchen window, straining to see even a sliver of early morning light. The sun was not going to be able to make its glorious appearance this morning, hidden behind the storm. The meteorologists were calling for snow today, along with the rain.
The darkness was inky, as she waited for the sun. She knew that it was there, even if she couldn’t see it. It occurred to her that this morning was much like the hard times of life. Some days can seem dark, even cold. Tears can flow like the rain on the wet soaked windows. It is during those times that one must remember that THE SON is still there. In fact He never left. You might not be able to see Him at the moment, but don’t give up hope. He is real. He is here, and He loves you.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.” John 3:16-17
