“Hope is the power of being cheerful in circumstances which we know to be desperate.” –G.K. Chesterton

I did not see the sun today, but I do not think for one moment that it has ceased to exist. Yes, there have been times when I’ve been blinded by its rays, but not today. Today, the gray skies have gathered, and the clouds have been my view. And though the darkness has lingered a little longer than expected, I know the radiant beams of tomorrow are a sure promise.

When I do not see the sun, I know that it is still there. I may not see its glory in the heavens but I still feel the warmth of its fire. I may not see the sun but I see the rose bush alive with vibrant color.  I may not see the sun, but I see the spring flowing as it did yesterday. I may not see the sun today, but I know it is there.

Even so, there are days when I do not see the Son. There are seasons when I cannot sense His presence.  There are times when I do not hear His whisper.  There are those moments when His Word seems void. I must confess, on some days the overcast of the world seems to block the rays of His glory in my life.  But, when I do not see the Son, I know He is there…for I see everything else.

He is there because He is holding everything else together. When I cannot and do not see Him, I know this one truth: I have seen enough of Him in my life to keep believing that the Son will shine again.
