Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. -Ephesians 6:13 (NASB)

Ever had your hopes soar, only to be shot down?

Just when you see a glimpse of daylight in the that long, dark season you’ve been in, it disappears just as quickly as it came. Your heart gets frustrated after jumping at the even slender possibility of the end in sight. But take heart. Here’s why.

Those glimpses of light in the dark are not there to tease or torment you, but to encourage you. Just like when you’re swimming underwater, even coming up to get a small breath of air is better than none at all.

Take the blip of light as an encouragement to know that, yes, light still does exist, and it still can and will pierce the darkness you’re in. Just like the telltale drips of water that come long before a dam bursts, those momentary lights precede the flood of light to come.

Thank God for that flash of light as if it were a wink from Him to let you know that it’s not over yet, and that He is indeed with you. Don’t give up!
