photoI got up early last Saturday morning and couldn’t believe the sunrise God gave us. Just stunning! Though I’m about half way through my life span, I haven’t seen thirty-eight years of sunrises. But I can guarantee, God hasn’t missed one. The sun ALWAYS rises. Does it rise in blue skies? Not always. Sometimes the sun rises in clouds; in rain; in winter. But it always rises. And so will you. As someone who has had to rise often from depression and anxiety, I have clung to this one promise in God’s word, “We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.“  We sure do get knocked down, don’t we? But if we have Christ in our lives, we have Christ in our comebacks. And here’s what that means: we will always rise. Addiction, divorce, loss, mental affliction…all kinds of things knock us down. But Jesus Christ isn’t only about sundowns, He’s about sunRISES. If you are knocked down, take heart, you will rise.
