The days are getting shorter. At the time of this writing, we are at 11 hours and 15 minutes of daylight. By December 21st, we will be down to 8 hours and 50 minutes. To me, that’s depressing. In my opinion, there is just not enough sunlight from late-October to late-January.
So what can be done about it. After all, we don’t have power over the amount of sunlight, right? Yes and No. While we can’t really do anything about the amount of daylight, we can bring more Sonshine into our lives. (No, I’m not talking about vitamin D pills or a trip to Florida.) I’m talking about basking in the warmth of the promises of God. The Light of the World shines brightly through His Word holding out the comfort and assurance of His love, forgiveness, and care.
Yes, the days are getting shorter, but the light of life shines as brightly as ever.
