I took this picture in the dark, without seeing what I was taking a picture of. There was a typhoon today and no electricity. My desk is in an alcove under a stairway and since it was dark and stormy outside, the light didn't reach my desk. So I just focused in the direction of my desk and voila! The camera flash revealed my desk for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday. (My desk is filled with memorabilia from my days as a runner. Here is my reflection on running the race.)
Sometimes life is like that. Stormy and dark and hard to see where it's taking us. But when I focus on God, even if I don't see Him, even if it feels like He's nowhere to be found, I experience the truths of His Word bringing light and comfort, peace beyond understanding, and even joy. Just as God's word says in Hebrews 11:1, "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." Indeed, blessed are those who have not seen and have believed. John 20:29 I'm sharing this drawing from my prayer journal in Word Art Wednesday.
It is now 11:30 in the evening and the electricity has finally come back. Just like life, all things are passing and during the dark and stormy times, we can say, this too shall pass.
Thank you for dropping by. Blessings to all of you!
