Good day, my friends. It is a good day in my neck of the woods. The Lord granted me a new day with brand new opportunities to do better. He filled it with brand, spanking new mercies; no leftovers for me! His mercies are new every morning.
There will be no actual sunshine in my day today, as a matter of fact, according to the meteorologist, the sun will be hidden behind the clouds for pretty much, most of the weekend and into the next week. Yet still, there must be a silver lining in there somewhere, because my God is always intentional in His doings. Never, does anything occur by happenstance. Faithful to me, He remains and faithful He will always be; for He cannot deny Himself.
Repeating a few of my favorite verses, help in reminding me of the faithfulness of my God, in spite of the dark, gloomy, dreary and rainy days. Left up to me, there would be very little good to be found in days like these.
Actually, I made the very intentional decision to seek the beauty that can be hidden in the dark, gloomy, dreary and rainy days. The grounds in my neck of the woods is so saturated, that in less than five minutes of rain, puddles are found everywhere. But even in there, beauty can be found if I seek it.
Confidently, I know for a fact that the God of the bright, beautiful, sunny days is the same God of the dark, dreary and rainy days.
Eventually, the sun will come out to play and if I remain faithful, if I see the blessings in the dreary, dark and gloomy days, if I give thanks and allow the God of the Universe to be God, then the sunshine will taste that much sweeter.
Have a fabulous day today and surrender the dark, dreary, gloomy and rainy days to Our God. He can handle it. What does your day look like, today?
