I'm having a terrible time living with life the way it comes these past few days. I want to pound my fists and scream. I don't want to hear anyone say that everything happens for a reason. I don't think that's true anymore. But I do look to God to help me through the dark times like today and help me to look forward to the better things that are headed my way tomorrow. It's just that sometimes it hard to look up and look forward when everything in your path seems so dark and hopeless and you feel helpless.
On my way to work this morning, I watched the sun rise. I watched the light play across the sky in violet and pink rays. I remembered how beautiful the new day can be. Please let the darkness pass quickly and let light into my heart.
"Live for today, but hold your hands open to tomorrow. Anticipate the future and its changes with joy. There is a seed of God's love in every event, every unpleasant situation in which you may find yourself."
