The sun has been out and shining this past week in Michigan! It has been a rough summer with lots of rain and cloudy days. It’s almost like summer just passed us by. When the sun is out, it makes me feel so much better. I know that I’m much more productive when it is. We need the sun. There is no doubt that sunshine is healthy for your minds, bodies, and spirit.
This crazy weather made me think deeper about God. Everyone is happy and go lucky when the weather is just the way we like it, but we begin to complain and get crabby when it’s gray and gloomy.
If we want to be successful and enjoy life, learning how to not let circumstances control us is key. When life is dark, and when you are walking through the shadow of death, know that you don’t have to fear. Although you may not see him, God is always with you. Don’t give up hope. Call on him, get in prayer, read his word, and know his promises. He is the light in this dark world. He will never leave you nor forsake you. Faith in not seeing, but believing.
Don’t allow the weather or your circumstances to steal your joy. Remember, when you can’t see the light, know that the Son is there, walking with you every step of the way. If you don’t give up, His light will shine once again, transforming the storm, wind, and clouds, until the most beautiful rainbow is on display for the world to see.
