The Sun Still Shines

Even in winter, even in the midst of the storm, the sun is still there.  Somewhere, up above the clouds, it still shines and warms and pulls at the life buried deep inside the brown branches and frozen earth.  The sun is there!  Spring will come!  The clouds cannot stay forever!                       —Gloria Gaither

It was a very cloudy, rainy, stormy day in Houston.  The damage in some communities left no doubt that the tornado warning had been a reality.  Although there was no sun shining through the clouds, it was there.

Sometimes life experiences are like tornados and hurricanes that leave a path of destruction.  After the turmoil and problems we face, we are left wondering can it get any worse.  The same way you chose to hold on to something you thought would keep you from being carried away by the strong winds, or you hid somewhere praying you’d be safe and secure until the storm passed is the same way you must hold on to your faith in Jesus Christ.  Let Him hide you under the shadow of His wings and keep you safe from the destructive forces of life (Psalm 91).  I pray that you will always remember the sun is still there even in the midst of the storm. Remember the storms pass, and the clouds cannot stay forever. The good news is that God is in control. And for those who accepts His Son, Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, He promises never to leave you or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).  This is the hope that we must live by—no matter how dark the day, or how great the storm, the true SON is still there!

Be encouraged! Be inspired!
