For obvious reason, I rarely run these days. But many moons ago, on this very rare occasion, I went for a jog. The sky was completely blanketed by grey clouds. A storm was approaching. It was a big contrast to the day before when the sun couldn’t stop beaming. Typical Melbourne weather.
I was conscious to run as slow as I can because ideally a pregnant women’s heart rate should not be above 140 beats per minute. Before pregnancy, I usually run each kilometre in less than 6 minutes so this didn’t feel much of a cardiovascular challenge. However, my bulbous belly and the lazed ligaments in my hips were impeding me from going any faster. This is probably going to be my last run for a while…
Suddenly, I looked up to find a golden ray of sunshine pierce through the thick dark clouds. It was magnificent. It was as if the sky was teaching me that even in times of uncertainly, confusion, and darkness, God shines His light through.
God’s Word, which is described in the Psalms as “a lamp for my feet, a light on my path“, always give us hope, love and strength even in the most helpless situations. All we need to do is look up.
