Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,
for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man.
Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely,
who conducts his affairs with justice (Psalm 112:4-5).
Paul said to thank You in all circumstances.
What wise counsel that is!
The first time I thanked You when I was in trouble,
You brought to my mind the truth—
how You have blessed me in hundreds of ways;
how You have brought beauty from what looked like ashes and ruin.
The truth is, when I walk with You,
I have access to heaven and protection from evil.
Even when times are difficult,
I come through the other side when I am with You.
Even when I am in darkness,
light dawns when I reach for You.
Thank You for Your unfailing love. Amen.
