Winter time can be long in the Midwest. There can be stretches where it seems like we barely see any sunshine.
The same can be true in our daily journey. Sometimes it seems like there is never a good break. It’s constantly cloudy, stormy, and dreary.
The picture in the graphic was taken on a July morning on my deck. I immediately thought that the sun is coming and even if we aren’t always able to feel it or see it we need to remember that it is always there.
The same is true for us. The sunshine, the good, is always coming, but it may not be on our schedule. Oftentimes, we just have to keep pushing through the tough times.
C.S. Lewis said, “Hardships often prepare people for an extraordinary destiny.”
Today, if you are going through a tough stretch, don’t give up, don’t give in, and believe that your sunny days, your extraordinary destiny is coming.
It will be worth the wait and you will be stronger and enjoy it even more when it breaks through.
