Here Comes the Son

By Joni Eareckson Tada

Recently, I listened to that old Beatles classic “Here Comes the Sun.” It was a song I played a lot when I was first injured. Thirty seconds into it, I was sobbing, thinking of those dark days in the hospital when I thought I would never smile, and I would never see the sunlight of hope.

Now, more than fifty-five years later, I’m thinking, “How did I ever make it?” But here I am, living in joyful hope as though it were sunshine. How did it happen? Well, day after day, month after month, year after year, I’ve been calling out to Jesus, clinging to his name, crying out constantly, “Oh, Lord, help me!”

Malachi 4 says that if we revere God’s name, “The sun of righteousness will rise with healing in [his wings].” And so, if you’re struggling through dark times, call on Jesus, and you’ll soon be singing, “Here comes the Son.”
