Yesterday was a wonderful day. The power company was doing some work on our street and we would have no electricity for several hours. Since I work at home and can’t work without internet and computer, I decided to get a couple of things done and because it was Love Your Pet Day, I had a couple of things in mind for Sampson, my precious pup. We headed out and delivered some glassware I had promised for a display then we were free to play. It was beautiful so we spent a lot of time outside. There are very few opportunities in my busy life to play without time restraints so I took advantage of it.
I loved yesterday. I could wish that every day was like that.
This morning, we woke up to clouds and a little bit of rain. My first inkling was to complain and feel disappointed but instead, I thanked God again for the day we enjoyed yesterday and decided this was going to be a great day too!
While taking Matt to work, I caught a glimpse of the sunrise. It was still raining, mind you, still looking yucky but it was like He burst through the clouds as if to say, “HEY! I’m still here. I’m still God in the rain and sunshine, and I’m with you regardless. Chin up little girl!”
There you go. God’s still God in the best of times and the worst of times; any kind of weather and ever-present in whatever we must weather. That makes the whatever-comes-our-way good, or for the good, if we keep our eyes on Him.
It’s so easy to complain, be dissatisfied and unsettled if we base our mood and our outlook on all that’s around us. This is another stellar day God’s given us, and with Him it’s just as wonderful and blessed, filled with grace, mercy and Him as any yesterday we’ve had. Let’s live like we believe that.
