20090428.jpgSome words of wisdom become so commonplace that the depth of truth they offer may be overlooked. Yet when I feel as if I'm in the midst of challenge, I find that expressions such as "This too shall pass" and "Every cloud has a silver lining" comfort me.

Troubles of the world are not permanent, but God's love is constant. It may appear that no good could come from present difficulties. In truth, however, I know that any difficulty can only temporarily obscure my view of good. Clouds cannot extinguish the sun. Its light continues to shine.

God's love never ceases to shine either. Divine love shows me that good awaits me--the goodness all around. I am comforted by the love of God.

"It is you who light my lamp; the Lord, my God, lights up my darkness."--Psalm 18:28
