Lent 2020 | Day 35: “Dawn”

If we are not careful, we can feel like we are enduring a night that will never end.

This could not be further from the truth. The beauty of our world is that for every night there is a morning. Some night may feel longer than we would like, but the world keeps right on turning.

The goodness of God protects us in days and times like these. He has order the universe to operate in such a way that we can trust in its constancy. Every cycle of evening and morning; every cycle of the change of seasons; even the cycle of life and death is a reminder that God is there, keeping everything in its place.

Uncertainty can cause us to waver and fret. But God never changes. God never wavers. God never forgets what he has promised.

The nigh may feel long, but we can hope in the fact that each nigh is followed by a glorious dawn.
