Walking the path of a bereaved mother is hard and uncomfortable
Right now my world feels dark…sunrise seems far off and uncertain. But I know in my heart the night won’t last forever.
The roosters on my farm remind me that what I see is not all there is.
Ever ponder why God made roosters crow? Some of my scientific friends will give me the biology of it but, really, why?
I think it was to bring Him glory and announce His faithfulness.
Even when the light is imperceptible to human eyes, the rooster sees the promise of the coming day and cannot contain himself in his joy.
My roosters start their call to worship about 3:30 each morning. When weather permits and my bedroom window is open, I hear first one and then the other, declaring the beginning of a new day.
It looks like night to me.
But maybe they perceive the faintest glimmer of light cresting over the horizon.
Or maybe they just announce it because they trust the One Who brings the sunrise even when they can’t yet see the sun.
So I will follow their example and trust even in the darkness and declare the truth–the Son is coming and physical death is not the end of the story…
“I am the Door; anyone who enters through Me will be saved [and will live forever], and will go in and out [freely], and find pasture (spiritual security).10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].” John 10:9-10 AMP
