I like to compare God's love to the sunshine. The sun shows up every morning , no matter how bad you have been the night before. It shines without judgment. It never withholds. It warms the sinners, the saints, the druggies, the cheerleaders,-the saved, and the heathens alike. You can hide from the sun but it won't take that personally. It'll never, ever punish you for hiding. You can stay in the darkness for years or decades, and when you finally step outside, it'll be there. It was there the whole time, shining and shining. It'll still be there, steady and bright as ever, just waiting for you to notice, to come out, to be warmed. All those years, I thought of God and light and the sun, as judgmental, but they weren't . The sunrise was my daily invitation from God to come back to life. WOW I so loved this from the book and it is very true, and really rang home for me!
I am a former teacher/administrator and we call this a "teaching moment" ! Please open your heart to Gods word, and being taught and you will find there is so much Love, Peace, and Trust for us there! Thanks to my daughter in law Kat for sharing this with me!
