“Weeping may last for a night, but joy comes in the morning,” Psalm 30:5.
Sometimes it seems as though the night will never end. I am writing the 4th book in my “Survival” series, “Darkest before Dawn.” I survived cancer, car accidents, loss of my family, abusive men, and teaching English overseas for 5 years–in Russia, Turkey, and China. What more must I survive? How can we all survive what is coming?
Have you ever noticed that it really is darkest–and coldest–before the sun rises? I often have trouble sleeping and have stayed up until dawn. Just knowing that the sun will rise gives me hope. Then, ironically, when that yellow orb breaks upon the eastern horizon, I can relax and go to sleep.
In the Gospel of John, Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.” In the book of Revelation (written by John), Jesus is “the bright and morning star.”
I often do my writing at night. If you like my blog, please check out my books.
