About a month or two ago, I was driving home from a vacation and the drive reminded me of life…
It rained in spots; some spots harder than others. The clouds were darker in some spots than others. One time I thought I would have to pull over because I couldn’t see. Just when I thought the rain had cleared, I’d run into another rough spot. I found myself growing more and more frustrated after each patch of rain and dark clouds. I just wished the rain would go away. I started to think I should’ve waited and even considered turning around, but I kept going. After at least an hour or so, it stopped and the sun started to shine!
Isn’t life similar? We encounter problems and obstacles and just when we think we’ve gotten past one problem, another one appears. We get frustrated, and we want to give up and start to doubt if we can make it through. Then, we start searching for a way out instead of believing that God will pull us through.
But I’ve learned that if you just hold on, keep praying, and keep pushing, the “rain and clouds” in your life will move! You have to believe that it’s going to get better.
God has a way of making the sun shine after the rain.
Be encouraged!!!! ❤️
In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation. (1 Peter 5:10 NLT)
