"But you, (your name) are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light." 1 Peter 2:9
Crisp weather and colorful foliage made for an incredible drive in the mountains. But the Fall drive was not without dark moments. Some roads cut right through the mountains and threw us in dreary tunnels. I didn't find any comfort or pleasure in the drab concrete and dim lights.
Just when my nerves started to unravel, the marvelous light at the end of the tunnel appeared. And not a moment too soon.
Life is much like my mountain drive. The anticipated journey we plan can take an unexpected turn... filled with detours, delays, potholes and tunnels. If we stop, fear might overtake us. When life is dark and uncertain, we must keep moving on.
But the truth be known, even while in the darkest tunnels of our lives, the Light is still with us. We might not see it, but it is there... God never forsakes us. He patiently and continuously watches over us and waits for us to return to Him and His endless love, grace and mercy. Are you in a tunnel? Keep moving in faith, and get out of the tunnel and under the wings of God. There we will find peace, comfort and rest. Thank You, Father.
have a Light-filled day!
