Even in the darkness…the sun still rises.

Early in the morning,

when the house is quiet

and darkness hasn’t

quite succumbed to daylight,

it’s during those wee hours

when slumber seems to slip from me.

Anxiety heightens,

as fear of these uncertain times

tries to consume my mind.

I cry out to God and quietly hear,

“Even in the darkness…the sun still rises”.

In that moment, I am reminded of his promises for me.

He said he will never leave me or forsake me,

my strong tower where I can find safety,

my rock, my refuge, my fortress, my hope.

His love protects me, surrounds me,

and never fails me.

This is where I find my peace, and place my trust in him.
