The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. Proverbs 4:18
How did this verse encourage you today?
I needed this reminder. That we're not expected to get where we're going in one day. It's a path. It's progressive. And it get's brighter. Sometimes by the smidgiest of smidgens. Sometimes direct and sometimes filtered through the clouds. But ever brighter till the full light of day. I find that incredibly encouraging.
It reminds me of a lyric from an old hymn: "Sometimes it's good to look back down. We've come so far, we've gained such ground. But joy is not in where we've been. Joy is who's standing at the end."
I think Joy is who makes the journey with us too. Regardless of the weather and into glorious light.
