Sunshine! Sonshine!

Spring is coming! Are you eagerly anticipating the warm days and bright sunshine?

Spring, however, can also be the season for dark, menacing thunderstorm clouds. The resulting gloominess makes us long for a peek at the sun. We may even lament, “I sure wish the sun was shining today!”

Actually, the sun does shine every day! Its bright warming rays are just obscured by the storm clouds.

Jesus, Son of God, also shines every day. But sometimes when clouds of trouble surround us, we fail to see His face through the resulting darkness. But, as God says in Numbers 6:25: The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you.

His care for us is constant. Not just on “sunny” days, but even on the darkest, saddest, and most troubling days. We give Him all thanks and praise as we stay grounded in the Word which reminds us of His forever love. Today. Tomorrow. For eternity.
