Through the Lens of Faith

IMG_2982Even a drawn shade can’t keep the sun from shining. It may dim it a little, or help one’s eyes keep from burning. It’s good to have a little shade.

Sometimes our faith might not burn as bright as we’d like. Sometimes a shade is drawn. But that shade can help protect us when things are challenging. The shade keeps the harmful rays from filtering through.

When you experience a drawn shade in your faith life, try to remember that the shade isn’t there to keep you in darkness. It may just mean that you need to take a little time not shine as bright for the moment.

This week, learn to appreciate the shaded areas and wait for the sun.
