The road was gravel. Dust rose up around us as we bumped along surrounded by thick darkness.
We were exhausted from driving 28 hours straight after United Airlines had just “removed our flight”, without notice, at the last moment.
I love my man, but I was really wishing I had not so easily agreed to just “jump in the car” at his suggestion.
It was late, and I was exhausted.
I began to wonder if this trip was going to be worth it.
But on and on we bumped and jarred along, still only able to see dust rising up in the headlights in that thick darkness.
Finally, we found the cabin, lugged in our suitcases and collapsed in the beds.
But when the morning came!
Oh, what our eyes beheld!
One by one we walked out on the porch with our mouths wide open!
What beauty! Once again, when my heart was overwhelmed, God had led me to the Rock that is higher than I. (Psalm 61:2)
He had done exceedingly, abundantly more than I had asked or imagined (Eph 3:20).
And like so many, much MUCH harder, situations in my life, that have felt so very dark at the time, God had brought beauty (Isa 61:1-3).
For many of us, this year has been hard.
For many others, life has been so VERY hard, and it’s had nothing to do with CoVid.
Sometimes, all we can seem to see around us is darkness.
But God is still there.
He is always there.
Nothing has changed with Him.
His plans are still good. Victory is still His, and He is still at work in a million ways we cannot see.
Oh friend, let’s don’t forget in the darkness what He has told us in the light!
Let’s hold on!
“No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him” (1 Cor 2:9).
