Before the Sun Came Up Award

Written by on May 30, 2012

Recently, Tim and I met with a prospective client, Mr. Sun Solar. On the wall in the office we saw an award from the OSEIA (Oregon Solar Energy Industries Association).  Because he significantly promoted solar heating in Oregon since 1980, John Patterson, owner of Mr. Sun Solar, was honored with the “Before the Sun Came Up Award.”

I am eager to live a life of faith – one of being sure of what I hope for, and certain of what I do not see. I want to jump up and down with excitement when everything’s going south and there’s no response to prayer. Though in lean times financially, I’m pouring a spirit of abundance – gratitude and joy – into anyone who will take it. I aim to live a life of faith in the supernatural before it shows up in tangible, concrete reality.

While it’s still cold and pitch black at night, I’m celebrating the dawn.

I figure Jesus has His own “Before the Sun Came Up Award.” I think I have a shot at it. I think you do, too.

What are you doing before the sun comes up?

    Hi Lynn,

    Thanks for your email.
    It is interesting what each of us as believers do when faced with a “Before the Sun comes up”. When the answer to devoted prayer is a simple “No” from God, it is life giving to realize that He loves us despite our unanswered prayer.

      Susan, you’re right. “No” is usually a painful response. I sometimes think God doesn’t “get” all the dimensions involved in the circumstances. But He’s God! I’m gradually learning to trust His sovereignty, even when I see no results.
