I know it’s only been raining for three days, but it feels like much longer.
Simply put, I’m ready for some sunshine. Even if it comes with bitterly cold winds and sub-freezing temps. I just want to see the sun again.
The beautiful part about this weather is that it will change. It’s highly unlikely that it will rain every single day for the rest of my life. Unless I move to Seattle. But that’s also highly unlikely.
We’ve all been through dark, dreary days, spiritually speaking. Those are the days where your life makes less sense, where the voices of fear and doubt are harder to drown out or dismiss, where it’s hard to imagine lofe ever feeling good again.
Those days end, too. God promised so.
Some times, it takes a change in your attitude. Sometimes, it takes deliberately finding three things a day to be thankful for (and if you do that for 21 days, your perspective changes). Sometimes, it takes remembering that God is really in control and that He knows what He’s doing in working all these things together for His glory and your ultimate good.
I still prefer not to drive in rain, especially at night. But that’s a topic for another day.
