My eyes look out upon the rainy streets and it’s hard to remember that these rains water the ground for
flowers and all the colorful Springtime beauty.
My ears listen to the softly falling waters
and deep within I miss the sun.
But then I remember that time in the plane
not so many months ago.
Boarding the plane amidst the rain
and then soaring high above the thick clouds
the sun broke forth all around us.
Glorious moments of seeing
what I knew while down on earth.
The sun is always shining.
Yes, no matter how cloudy and drear the day
the sun still shines.
We don’t even need to rise very high to get above those clouds either.
Life is alot like that.
There are times when the rains fall hard
and our spirits quiver and shake.
“I am with you” His Voice whispers deep within.
“I am always with you.”
Knowing He is with me
walking with me through all the challenges of life
gives me great comfort and peace.
My eyes cannot see Him
but I know He is here.
Brightening my day with the warmth of His Presence.
But if I focus simply on the rain and the dreariness
more than likely I will not sense Him.
In fact I might easily miss Him.
Our thoughts are like that.
They have power to enable us to see
or not see the gifts all around.
So I will remember the sun shining high above
and the One who shines with me today.
One day my faith will become sight.
One day I will see that for which I hunger right now.
no more sickness
no more tears or painful goodbyes
no more fightings or wounded hearts.
No, one day all wrongs will be made right
