“For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.” Romans 8:24
Though you may not see, the Son is always behind the clouds. Just wait.
I got up this early morning from a sleepless night. I had to be at the Endodontist first thing. I have a tooth that was crowned a few years ago and it seemed to be giving me trouble. My dentist said I might need a root canal. For a week I’ve been thinking something was not right with the crown, but what do I know, I’m not the dentist. I hate going to the dentist.
When I walked out of the house it was a gloomy overcast day. The sun was nowhere to be found. But, I know it’s still there. It’s amazing how the look of the weather can affect your outlook of the day. Depressing looking days have a tendency to depress. We can forget the sun is always there behind the clouds.
As I sit here writing this the sun is breaking through the clouds. It was there all the time. We cannot always see it when we want, but with patience it always comes.
Don’t worry so much when you see the clouds in your life. Even if it tarries, wait in hope. Though all we may see is clouds, the Son is always there. Our hope is in someone greater than what our eyes can see. Jesus is always there. Wait on Him, His timing is perfect.
When I was at the Endodontist, he said he believed I needed an adjustment on my crown and a little antibiotic would take care of it instead of a root canal. It seens to feel much better. And, it cost me $95 instead of $1000. What a blessing.
