Whether its gray skylines or headlines
remember, the sun/Son is always near
Up and up the sun is climbing
Though the dawn is dark and gray
The Creator’s perfect Timing
Will drive brooding clouds away
What we see is but a little
We cannot behold the sum
While we are still in the middle
Of what is yet to become
So, when morning skies are bleary
And horizons bleak and gray
Keep the faith, when day is dreary
The sun is not far away
Imagine if on that morning
When we meet HIM face to face
We had never known the yearning
For a better time and place
Take a moment to consider
When we reach life’s solemn end
What if Jesus is a stranger
Not a Comforter and Friend
What if only sunny weather
Blinded faith's eyes to the Day
When time's ever-thinning tether
Breaks its ties and falls away
Up and up we all are climbing
Though for now clouds may prevail
Faith trusts in the perfect timing
Of a Son that does not fail

2 Peter 1:3
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life
through our knowledge of him
who called us by his own glory and goodness....
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith virtue;
and to virtue, knowledge;
and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control,
perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness;
For if you possess these qualities and continue to grow in them,
they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive
in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, brothers, strive to make your calling and election sure.
For if you practice these things you will never stumble,
We live in an age of greatest educated ignorance ever,
as Higher Education Institutions disregard God...
Here Paul is urging believers to increase
their Higher Education in
the only knowledge that can make us wise;
the knowledge of Lord Jesus Christ...
If indeed they have escaped the corruption of the world
through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
only to be entangled and overcome by it again,
their final condition is worse than it was at first.
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
To Him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity.
