The Son Has Come
In the dark of night, the sky gives no hints that the sun will rise again. And yet we look with expectancy for another day to come. We remember the reliable regularity of a sun that rises in the sky every day of our lives.
In the earliest moments of dawn, the darkness must give way to the unstoppable light that fills the heavens. Advent comes to the weary pilgrims, crossing the crushing expanse of night like the promise of coming dawn. It reminds those with crushed dreams and broken hearts that the Son has come, is coming, and will come again.
I have known darkness that clouds and fills the lungs with smothering despair. And by God’s unspeakable grace, I have seen the light of a day that I thought might never come again. This Advent I remember, and I rest in the utter faithfulness of my Creator. (Written by Doug Floyd)
