Tonight as I was walking just before a rainstorm came in, I happened to look up at the clouds. I am fascinated by clouds, they are so beautiful! And each one so unique. Tonight, what I noticed, though, was not their uniqueness…but a hole. A hole in the clouds.
A storm was coming in; the clouds were very dark. Yet, there was a hole in the clouds. Through the hole I saw blue sky, yet there were gray and stormy clouds all around it.
A hole in the clouds.
A light at the end of the tunnel.
A ray of light shining through.
A rainbow in the storm.
Peace in the middle of the storm.
As I walked, I was reciting scripture verses that I’ve been memorizing and praying through these verses. God showed me hope through one of my all time favorite verses from the past.
“The Lord is my light and my salvation. Whom shall I fear?” Psalm 27:1
God is my light. He is my Hope. My hole in the clouds. My peace in the storm. Whom shall I fear? I do not need to fear the darkness, because HE is my light. Not my feelings, not my children, not any other person, not my anything. He is the light in the darkness. He is the hope in the night. He is a little ray of light when the darkness surrounds. He doesn’t always choose to remove the darkness or storms from our lives, but He does provide a hole in the clouds or a light in the darkness. A light to show me the way. A light to give me hope.
Hope. He is my Hope.
