We’ve had so much rain for so long the ground is saturated. Yesterday when we went to our favourite park one of the bridges we usually cross was under water. The roads I drive on every day were beginning to have standing water on them and I was anxious to get home where it was safe.
Last night around bedtime, which was about the time the rain stopped, a roaring wind began to blow that was so strong it scared my dog and cat. I drifted off to sleep to the sound of my wind chimes dancing in the powerful wind.
This morning it was noticeably cooler and I noticed while taking my son to work a lot of the water I had seen yesterday was no longer there. When we walked we were able to cross the now dry bridge that was impassable yesterday. That scary wind through the night that I thought was bad and frightening had cleared all of our paths today.
That’s a word from our Father! Bad, scary stuff sometimes comes our way and things look washed out and impossible. We worry, fear and hopefully pray for God to remove them, make them better or rectify them. Soon after in most cases, we find the “bad thing” was actually the blessing because THROUGH what stopped us in our tracks yesterday cleared the way for us today.
We can trust Him. He allows what he does in our lives for many things, but I’m thinking the most important purpose is to get us to a place where we come to know Him more intimately, rely on and trust in Him more than we did before. It’s all good, my friend!
Psalm 9:10 (NASB): And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, for You, O LORD have not forsaken those who seek You.
Romans 8:28!!!! (ALL things)
