As I sit here on Saturday night, I am listening once again to the heavy, heavy rain pouring down from heaven. I am reminded of Noah and his family. We have had rain for several weeks, nearly every day and extremely heavy at times. Fortunately, the waters abate before any major floods have occurred. I complain about the rain and wish it would stop. But then I think what it must have been like to be in the ark for 40 days and 40 nights and rain and water everywhere and I shouldn't complain.
As the rain cleanses the air and makes the ground and plants spurt up and thrive, we need to remember that the rainy days in our life are just as good. If you have sunny days and happy times every day, how will you appreciate them if a little rain and gloom fall into your life at times. I have always loved these lines from one of my favorite songs.
We see rainbows a lot after these heavy rainy days we experience. Simple blessing that God bestows when we have suffered from life's storms.
But no matter how big or how little the storms are that we weather, God has promised to bring us through.
So instead of fussing at the rain, I should be thanking God for the cleansing and I should have faith that after the storm passes, the blessing will begin to pour in once again.
I hope you have a blessed Sunday!
