Facing East

As surely as the sun rises, he will appear.
                                    —Hosea 6:3

“The soul of many a man has its eastward aspect,” wrote F.W. Boreham. He explained that most people experience long, dreary nights in life. And when they do they turn their faces eastward, where they hope to see the glimmer of dawn; the rising sun; the light.

You won’t get through life without some dreary nights, when the moon and stars are eclipsed by financial scrapes, loss of loved ones, illness, disappointment, anxiety, betrayal, and alienation.

Those nights are dark and long and cold. It seems that dawn will never come. But it will. Keep your eyes fixed on the eastern horizon, looking for the light—for God. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear.

Today is a new day.
Yesterday died last night.
