Morning by Morning

Favorite Proverbs: #37 Morning by Morning

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.
