Monday in the Fourth Week of Lent
Your love, O Lord, for ever will I sing;
from age to age my mouth will proclaim your faithfulness.
The sun may be obscured, but its power is at work, its energy inextricably entwined with the continuous movement of water from clouds to earth to underground streams and back to the surface and into the atmosphere once more.
In the back of my mind, I hear an echo from one of yesterday’s hymns:
We wait in faith, and turn our face
to where the daylight springs,
till thou shalt come our gloom to chase,
with healing in thy wings.
(John Mason Neale, 1846)
I remember that the rain is full of life and promise. And that it comes at the hands of the Author of life. And I wonder what it would be like to enter this day with my face lifted rather than trying to duck the storm.
