The sun's out again, and the sky is blue... but dark clouds are looming.
The great thing though, even though the sun may not be out as long as we'd like, and dark clouds loom and days are short at this time of the year - Gods light shines constantly and keeps away inner darkness. It lights the deepest darkest reaches of our inner being, warming us, keeping us, reminding us that God loves us eternally.
Equally, it reminds us, or it should remind us, that we cannot hide anything from our God. We may try, and often succeed to hide things from others, and we even sometimes think that hiding in the dark behind a locked door may prevent God from knowing about "our little secret", but deep down we all know that He knows. Open the doors, confess these secrets and accept Gods forgiveness. He wants you to... Go on, DO IT!
John 3 16-21 (NLT)
16 "For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.
18 "There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God's one and only Son.19 And the judgment is based on this fact: God's light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil.20 All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed.21 But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants
