“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28: 20b

What a beautiful sunrise this morning. Cool air, birds chirping and the sun coming up over the horizon to light up a clear sky. How often we take for granted our sight. We can miss out on the wonderous beauty God has given us. I remember being in Idaho and was taken back by the beautiful mountain scenery. When I mentioned it to someone that lived there, they acted as if it were no big deal. They had become so used to seeing it, that they had become blind to it. Our spirit too can become blind, making it difficult to see Jesus. The disciples struggled with this after Jesus’ death, and we struggle with this even today. We can become blinded by many things in our lives–ambition, love, anger, grief, and the list could go on and on. In the middle of our struggles and situations, it becomes entirely too easy to ask “Where is God?” But rest assured that He is always standing next to you.
