Put Out the Sun

“A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.” ~C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain


Trying very hard to not be that lunatic today.  If you are a praying person, I could definitely use some.  Trying not to fall deeper into the darkness.  A very trying day.  God is testing me and I’m afraid I’m failing miserably.  I try to be upbeat and encouraging most of the time, but can’t find it today.  I apologize.

I usually try to put out the sun – bring forth light – make it shine brighter.  Today, I feel I put out the sun – scribbled it out.

I know things will be better.  Maybe tomorrow.
