We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
–Romans 6:4 ESV
Life is full of storms. We face difficulties of all types in this world and may experience clouds of doubt as to the outcome. Looking at things from the natural point of view means that behind every darkened sky the sun still shines. And what wonderful peace we have as Christians that during every storm of life the Son of our living God shines!
Just as the sun rises every morning to bring us warmth and hope to the world, the Son of God rose from the dead to bring us hope and a future of life eternal in Heaven.
Jesus is with you this very moment. No matter the weather of your day. No matter the storms you face or are going through, the Son shines brightly within you. Turn to Him in the darkness, and His light will guide you. Turn to Him when the outlook is bright, and His grace will glow within you. Praise His name no matter what the weather looks like. Those around you can see this attitude in you and know peace like they never knew before.
The Son shines in you today, and the forecast is brighter than ever!
- Father, in the presence of Jesus, guide me through the storms of my day so that others might see Your glory in my steps.
- Papa, let me lead others by being Your light in the darkness. Help me to spread the hope of Your Word in my walk with You.
