GLOW AND SHINE
As we traveled home from our vacation today, the sky was mostly overcast and we drove through some rain, sometimes pretty heavy. But there were patches where the sun’s glow shone through blue sky.
While riding in the car I wrote the first two stanzas of a poem, then finished it at home.
Glow of Light through Storm
Sky is overcast
As we travel down the road
Peaceful music plays
In between the clouds
A glimpse of sunshine appears
In patches of blue
Soon the clouds disburse
Darkness flees as glowing sun
Bursts through full and bright
Even in the storm
Lightning glows like bolts of fire
Breaking through the gloom
Our lives are sometimes filled with dark clouds when we are overwhelmed by our circumstances.
How can we find light when the darkness is so thick? How do we know which way to go or what to do?
Though it may not give us specific answers for our current problems, the Bible is a guide to help us find our way. Often I find comfort in the Psalms whether it’s reassurance of God’s love and faithfulness or solace in the laments found there.
How do you find light or hope when you are feeling overwhelmed with your circumstances?
This is Day 3 of #write28days. The prompt word is glow.
