I noticed the other day when I was running, the dark clouds were out and the sky was not bright. However the LEAVES! They were so bright! It made me think of the scripture below. Even when there is darkness all around, Gods light is there to grasp onto. Sometimes it is easy to see, and other times, it is VERY difficult to see. Yet, it is there.
The leaves were my reminder. THEY were glowing! When the sky is bright blue and beautiful, it makes my heart so happy and then add the fall colors and BOOM! WOWZER! So, when I noticed the leaves glowing with darkness all around, it reminded me of that scripture. Which reminded me that I too, should praise HIM even in times of darkness!
Luke 19:37-40 ~ When he reached the place where the road started down the Mount of Olives, all of his followers began to shout and sing as they walked along, praising God for all the wonderful miracles they had seen. 38 “Blessings on the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in highest heaven!” 39 But some of the Pharisees among the crowd said, “Teacher, rebuke your followers for saying things like that!” 40 He replied, “If they kept quiet, the stones along the road would burst into cheers!”
