John 8:12 Later, Jesus talked to the people again. He said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never live in darkness. They will have the light that gives life.”
Where the Sun Always Shines

No one likes it when it’s wet and windy, when that storm sweeps through. You don’t and I don’t. And yet right in the middle of those storms of life, there’s a place where the Son is always shining.
So … I’m on another plane from somewhere to somewhere else just recently. It’s the story of my life. I battle my way through the traffic to the airport. It’s been a tough few days, and just to top things off it’s cold, it’s wet, and the wind’s blowing so hard that the plane’s rocking from side to side on the tarmac. Sensational!
It’s a bumpy take-off, but within about ninety seconds, bang, we break through the cloud cover into the bright sunlight. That’s happened so many times to me over the years, and each time it’s so incredibly special.
The point is, that no matter how dark and wet and windy it is down there on the ground, the sun is always shining above the clouds.
Just stop and think about that amidst the rain and the wind and the storms of life and the traffic and the honking horns – whatever all that looks like in your life right now.
I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never live in darkness. They will have the light that gives life.
No matter how dark and wet and windy your life is, His light is still shining. Draw close to Jesus. It’s like bursting through that cloud cover into that place where the Light always shines.
So … what exactly are you waiting for?
That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
