When was the last time you drove somewhere at sunrise?
Sometimes the morning light is absolutely overwhelming. Piercing. It’s so bright you can’t help but close your eyes, a scary thing to do when driving. You fumble around blindly for your sunglasses but they’re on the floorboard and out of reach. You feel anxious, worried about getting to your destination. Then, you pry your eyes open a sliver…just enough to see that amazingly, you are right where you need to be.
We don’t always see where we are going in life. There is uncertainty everywhere we turn–the economy, job security, that doctor’s appointment we put off, even the weather. As hard as it is for all of us to remember from day to day, especially during our loneliest, most heart-wrenching of times, God will keep us on track if we just close our eyes and let Him drive.
