The darker the night the brighter the stars shine.

There’s a sheet of paper I keep that someone once gave to me when I was going through a very tough time. I can’t remember who it was but I do remember them scribbling these words for me; “God’s promises are like the stars; the darker the night the brighter they shine.”

At the time I really didn’t want to hear another pious cliché; but I kept it anyway. Why? Because as I thought about it I realized it was true, and those verses from the Bible that I had read so often suddenly became my constant companions; no longer just words in a book, but actual words of life. I discovered that God really is at work for the good of those who love Him, just like the Bible says. And that promise became one of the brightest stars in my dark night.

The darker the night the brighter the stars shine. I hope those promises are shining for you.
