“And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.” –Genesis 1:3
On autumn mornings I wait as long as I can to walk Lexi. I’m waiting for the light. I get dressed, eat breakfast, brush my teeth…empty the dishwasher, make some tea, water the plants...I put off walking the dog because I don’t want to walk in the dark. Yet eventually we have to set out, whether or not the sun is up, so I can be back in time to take the kids to school. I have to walk in the dark if we’re going to walk at all. We Christians don’t want to walk in the dark, either. It’s hard to be faithful in disappointment, despair, or grief. Yet eventually we have to set out, whether the sun is up or not. Sometimes we have to walk in darkness if we’re going to walk at all. Eventually God will say, “Let there be light,” and there will be light.
Dear God, Give me faith that if I set out in the darkness there will eventually be light. Amen
