It is Raining

We have had some really nice sunny weather for the last couple of days, but it is pouring rain right now. That is how life tends to be, in seasons. There is a season of sunshine when everything seems to be going good, nobody has COVID, jobs going well, kids are doing good, and we have a vacation planned and coming up soon.

But then it starts to rain, and one problem, crisis, trial after another comes sweeping into our life. I remind myself that even in Job’s life the trials ended and the sun shone.

Psalms 30:5 For His anger is but for a moment,
His favor is for a lifetime;
Weeping may last for the night,
But a shout of joy comes in the morning.

As we cycle through life, sunshine and rain, sunshine and rain, the ultimate will be when we cycle right into heaven, now that will be sunshine indeed.

Ecclesiastes 7:14 In the day of prosperity be happy,
But in the day of adversity consider—
God has made the one as well as the other.

“Consider,” think seriously, deeply, reflectively about life, God, our faith, eternity, our goals, character flaws. I write a lot during adversity putting down my questions, frustrations, lessons learned, and insights gotten.

God has made the as well as the other.
