Did you know that some days the sun shines just for me? That’s right. I have an in with the Creator of the universe. He calls me daughter. Do you know what else? Some days the sun shines just for you too!
My world is blissful right now. My kids, even though they drive me half insane fighting and they both threw fits tonight because I wouldn’t let them have a snack 5 minutes before dinner was ready, my kids are happy and healthy. Today mommy got a break for a couple hours, which unheard of in the summertime. I have beautiful wonderful friends who push me to be better tomorrow than I am today. And new on the scene I have a blossoming relationship with a man who makes my heart beat a little bit faster every time I talk to him, or think of him, or see him, ok maybe a lot faster, and who keeps me laughing! So, today the sun shone just for me! What a beautiful day it was.
If you find yourself in the middle of a storm today, and trust me I know all about those storms, I encourage you to be steadfast to God during this time. Soon enough the storm clouds will roll back and blue skies will shine through.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. –Romans 8:28
God can redeem whatever it is that you’re going through. He can and will work everything for your good. I think the key to realizing this is to not look for things to come in our own time, but be patient and wait on His timing. Expecting God to move on our timeline only creates frustration. Your story comes out so much better when you let Him move in His own time!
Sit back and enjoy one of my very favorite Natalie Grant songs, then tell me about the days when the sun shines just for you! If you’re going through a storm, tell me about that too. I would love to join in praying for you, and when the sun starts shining I would love to celebrate with you!
