It’s a drought here in south Texas. Oh. so. dry. and temperatures rise daily into the high 90’s. The fact that we have rain should be exciting news. You’d think?
The sound of thunder and rain is music to my soul. The black clouds that dance over head are calming. However, I’ve not been so grateful!
This just isn’t a good time for a storm. I mean, I. had. plans! There was a trip to the hill country where a lazy day on the river and at the pool were foiled. There was my opportunity to learn in Richmond and it got cancelled. This is not a good time for rain!
Maybe you’re in the middle of a storm too. Oh it might not be a black-cloudy thunderstorm, but maybe instead it’s a full-blown storm of life.
Storms of life sneak up on us out of nowhere. They creep in with their dark clouds and rolling thunder. You don’t ask for them. They are absolutely never wanted at the moment. They wreck our plans.
I know that although my plans were rearranged for the weekend due to rain, the sun will come out again. Maybe not tomorrow, but oh how it will shine again! I have faith. God never let’s us down as the sun will shine through.
Are you stuck in the middle of a life storm? Are you so weathered in with black clouds thundering overhead that you can’t even envision the sun shining through again? If that’s you, I’m here to remind you with a short word today that the sun will shine through again. The Son promises so!
Hang on to the promises of God’s word, wake up each day expecting a ray of sunshine to break through. <—tweet that here! Then one day, when you are least expecting it, the sun will come out again.
You’ll be amazed at how brightly the Son will shine through your soul, once you’ve hung on with God’s truth and faith.
Oh hallelujah, the sun will come out again tomorrow!
And in the meantime you count your blessings as I’m doing over at A Holy Experience.
