“We bring nothing at birth; we take nothing with us at death. The LORD alone gives and takes. Praise the name of the LORD!” Job 1:21
Each day as I head west on my way to work, I can see the sun rising in my rearview mirror and the moon descending right before my eyes. As it says in Job, The Lord gives and takes away…..With the rising of the sun there are benefits of healing both physically and mentally, the sun can bring feelings of joy and happiness! In retrospect we would not have the rising of the sun if we did not have the setting of the moon, the moon brings us the night and feelings of rest and peace. The Son wants to bring all of these things to us as well, He longs for us to be healthy, rested, happy and content. But that does not mean that the darkness wont come…….
Often on cloudy days the moon can be hidden, but because I trust it is always there I can see a faint glow in the distance. Just like our Father we may not be able to always see him, but faith is trusting he is there for us, in times of joy and in times of darkness.
Today I give praise for the rising of the sun and the setting of the moon!
