Such sad words we read from Job. He longs for days gone by. He wastes away in his lonely darkness, feeling as if God has left him. As if God once watched over him, guided him, and lit his way. And now with pain and sorrow, he feels as though God has somehow left him.
But the truth is, God does not leave. He is constant. God, in fact is the only thing in this world that cannot, and will not change. And His light cannot, and will not be overcome by the worst darkness we can imagine.
If we are in the middle of a dark time, we must turn and keep turning until we find Him. For if we cannot see the light, it simply means we are not looking in the right direction. Shadows fall behind objects in the light. You've stood outside in the sun, you know this!
Let us not stand facing the shadows. Rather, turn toward the light... feeling the warmth of His love upon our face, knowing the problem is now behind us. It IS a matter of perspective, of choice, of trusting in the One who holds light and life.
Leave the days of, "If only..."
Begin again, fresh and bright today. His mercies and compassions are new for each of us. His faithful love never fails!
