Eclipse

I don’t know anything about eclipses except it occurs when an astronomical object is temporarily obscured by passing into the shadow of another body. I assume for the last few weeks, the news channels in your areas covered the ins and outs of viewing this occurrence. Today, masses of people from all around the world are anticipating the solar eclipse. Maps, charts, and timelines are available online to track the path of this phenomenon.

When looking up the definition of eclipse, I smiled when I read…..”Temporarily  obscured.”  Like I stated, I do not know much about eclipses, but I can relate to temporarily obscured. When I think back over my life, I have had life eclipses, seasons when all seemed well, then without warning…. Darkness sets in! Oh, I had some warning for some of those dark seasons, but for the most part….. I didn’t have time to order special glasses or travel to a certain location to prepare.

According to the Word of God, God is the maker of heaven and earth….. so in my way of thinking, a solar eclipse is controlled by Him. In the same way, I believe according to God’s Word, I was created by Him and during my life eclipses….. “He never leaves me or forsakes me.” (Heb. 13:5) I need to be still and remember it is only temporary. (Psa 46:10)

Today, the sun may appear dark for those in the line of the eclipse, but the sun is still there. I don’t know what today really means as far as the solar stuff…. But I pray if you are in a dark season of your life…. Know it is temporary. Know the one true God of the Bible is still there. I want you to know, like so many of us …. He is right where you are waiting on you to invite Him into your life eclipse.

“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”( Isa. 43:2)

If I could send an audio with this devotional, I would sing ….. “The sun will come out tomorrow, ….” Can you name that song? J

Have a great Day!!!!!!
