A neighbor was telling me of several troubles she was facing and how dreary and dark life looked to her. At the end of her saga, she stopped talking, thought for a moment, then smiled and said, “But I know the sun will come out tomorrow!” She had hope and faith that everything would work out and resolve for the better. And it did.
The sun always comes out tomorrow! In fact, the sun is always shining away in the sky, illuminating the space around it. We never fear the sun being absent.
Clouds may get in the way of seeing the sun. Our location on earth may be temporarily rotated away from the rays of the sun. We may be standing in a dark closet and not able to see the sun. But these conditions are temporary. The sun is always there. The sun is always shining.
In Science, God is our “sun.” God is the source of all healing light, inspiration, health, love, wisdom, strength, and everything else that makes us whole, complete beings.
Material sense may act like a cloud on some days that appears to block the sun. Our thought may get distracted by error and feel like its standing in a dark closet. But these states can all change and improve. We can part with material sense, engage with spiritual sense, and find the light again. We can walk out of those confining closets of sense and stand in the sunlight of Soul where thought abounds with inspiration. Through prayer and sincere effort, we can always find our Sun and benefit from its light.
Yes, the sun will be out tomorrow. It never leaves. It never fails to do its job. But even better, you don’t have to wait until tomorrow to find it. The Sun of God is here now, and readily seen through spiritual sense.
“Corporeal sense, or error, may seem to hide Truth, health, harmony, and Science, as the mist obscures the sun or the mountain; but Science, the sunshine of Truth, will melt away the shadow and reveal the celestial peaks”
(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy, p. 299).
