I prayed a prayer of thanks this morning while waiting for the rain. I am thankful for the seasons in my life when it seems like spring, storms everyday, constant gray skies & wondering when will God let it end. If it wasn't for the rain in my life I would never get a season of new life. The rain draws me closer to God because without him I have nothing to lean on. No hope of any comfort or blue skies ahead. You see, I need him more in times of trouble and I praise him even more during the dark storms of my life.
No one likes to have bad seasons in life but they will always come. One thing is certain though, God promises us we will never be alone and that he will always be there to hold us up when our legs have been knocked out from under us. Take comfort in that and praise God in all seasons of your life, especially the stormy ones.
John 14:1 "Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me"
