You who made a way for me
By suffering Your destiny
So tell me what's a little rain
When we consider what Christ did for us and continues to do for us, the only correct response to every single thing in our life is PRAISE. Instead, I know for me the first thing that I do when a little rain sprinkles down in my life is WORRY. However, Jesus tells us in Matthew 6: 25-34 to not worry. To sum it up, it basically says that if God takes care of the birds and the flowers, won't He take care of us so much more than them? Worrying accomplishes no good. While praising God is always correct!
Psalm 34:1 "I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips."
So, let's pray for, help and encourage each other through the rains and storms of life. Instead of joining in on the 'woe is me' parties, let's look for the rays of sunshine peaking through and if they can't be found just yet, let's praise God for what the rain will bring.
Proverbs 10:25 tells us "When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone, but the righteous stand firm forever."
