In a Sunshine State

78 Because of the tender mercy of our God, with which the Sunrise from on high will visit us, 79 to shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

Luke 1:78–79 (NAS)

In January in my neck of the woods, in the Sunshine State, we enjoy what I call some high sun days. Clear blue skies and radiant sunlight, hopefully accompanied by—finally—some crisp cool temperatures. If it were possible, you’d just like to peer right into the light and bathe in it.

So it is with the Lord’s tender mercy, but it is possible to fixate and thrive on it. This mercy helps us to rise up and navigate through dark and dreadful times, and it leads us to peace. And each day the sun rises and hangs in a clear blue sky, because his mercy, or compassion, is new every morning. Lamentations 3:23
