Have you ever wondered why we focus so much on sunsets and not sunrises?
Maybe because it's easier to watch a sunset as it happens in a more convenient time of the day. Maybe it's just become a habit to photograph and paint sunsets instead of sunrises. The same can be true in our own lives. We can form habits of focusing on the sunsets in our lives, and when we do, we can miss the sunrises in them. The sun setting represents the end of the day while the sun rising represents the beginning of the day. In the same way, sunsets in our personal lives can symbolize the end of something or the loss of something, while sunrises can symbolize the start of something or the gain of something. When we think the sun is setting on our circumstances, maybe the sun is really rising. God is always turning our circumstances together for good.
Is it time for you to proclaim, "It's a sunrise, not a sunset"?
