My morning devotion was titled During the Darkest Days. For me, today, that was an apt title and a needed devotion. The openning line read, "The sadness that accompanies any significant loss is an inevitable part of life. In time the sadness runs its course and gradually abates." Isn't it funny how often a message will come just on the day it is expressly needed. I needed to read this today. I need the assurance that sadness will run its course and lessen over time. I also needed to read and hear the accompanying bible verse: "I have heard your prayers; I have seen your tears. Look I will heal you." 2 Kings 20:5.
Why was this important to me today? Because tonight I faced up to what my future holds. Even more important to my future is the quotation for the day given in the devotion. "Concern should drive us into action an not into depression"~~Karen Horney. I need to move not sit still. I need to move into action an action that will place me in a good place for my future. The future that God has planned for me.
