Rain. A constant companion these past several weeks.
It has rained so much in my neck of the woods, we could currently rival with London or Seattle with how much rain we have been getting lately.
I’m not a huge fan of the rain. I prefer sunshine. I can only help but grasp at the positive of all this rain. Maybe, it will be a very dry summer and we will be glad for all of the rain we are currently getting.
My current version of the famous nursery rhyme:
“Rain, rain, go away, don’t come back another day.”
I feel like I’m complained out about all of this rain.
I’m ready for a new season. A new season that involves sunshine.
I can’t help but think of how this applies to life.
We may be currently facing a season of rain (literally and figuratively).
A car that’s on its last leg, singleness, cancer, debt, an adoption process, etc.
No matter the season we are in, there will be an end to it.
The end may feel no where in sight, but we can’t give up.
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”
Like I mentioned in my last post, the word I love to focus on in this verse is the word “through”. Because God will help us through the season that we are in. The season may last longer than we hoped, but we won’t be stuck in that season forever.
Why not try to look at the positives in your season?
Don’t give up hope. God is right by your side.
“If you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”
