The Sun May Set, But It Always Rises Again!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threes

Yesterday evening I managed to catch the sunset as I left work, it was a busy day as usual, but a good end to a good day.

The Burning Beyond The Dark

The evening seemed to be going fine, until the consequences of my past caught up with me again, at that point my spirit dropped considerably.

Then as I prepared my post “Verse of the Day – Jeremiah 29:12-12”, I came to my senses, regardless of what is happening to me now, I am not that person, when I typed the words “God listened and answered me, 99 weeks sober this evening”, the downsides of my past faded away and the feeling of joy and thankfulness returned.

So this morning I witnessed the sunrise again, it was a timely reminder:

The sun may set, but it always rises again!

GET UP by CIRCLESLIDE
What if I told you I wasn’t ready for this life
What if I told you this wasn’t what I had in mind
What if this mountain’s just too high

Get up get up 
brush off the dust from your soul
Get up get up 
the past is beyond your control
Get up get up
don’t ever give up on love

What if I told you my whole world broke down last night
What if showed you my surprising ugly side
What if I’ve fallen out of line

What if I told you there was time when I believed
What if I told you I’m exploding with doubt I’m infected with weakness
I’m breaking the silence crying out, crying out

Get up get up 
brush off the dust from your soul
Get up get up 
the past is beyond your control
Get up get up
don’t ever give up on love
