Dreary Day (Ho-Hum)

Today is a dreary day in Houston, Texas. Clouds have thickened to cover the sky in a dull gray.  Every now and again, it will rain. Sometimes with a clash of lightning and thunder, and sometimes just a quiet plop of water.

On days like this, I find myself looking for the Son-shine.  God has given us a great many things on this earth and gloomy days with rain is one of them.  So, where can I find my Son-shine today?

I found it in the book of Acts, when the Apostle Paul heals a crippled man. The people of Lystra see the miracle occur and decide that the Apostles must be gods. They form a parade and are on their way to carry out a sacrifice.  Paul stops them.

And says,

“In the generations before us, God let all the different nations go their own way. But even then He didn’t leave them without a clue, for he made a good creation, poured down rain and gave bumper crops. When your bellies were full and your hearts happy, there was evidence of good beyond your doing.” Acts 14:16-18

The rain today is a clue or reminder of God’s goodness toward His children! Without the rain, crops would not grow and we would be hungry. Without the rain the pollen would stick in our throats and cause respiratory problems. Without the rain, the air would be hot, stale and unbearable.

Without the rain, I would not remember that there is a time for everything. A time for happiness and sunshine, and a time for grief with tears and Son-shine. And that God is always with me, walking by my side, holding my right hand!

Oh, I am not special because He is there for you too. Holding your hand, splashing through the puddles of life!

And that is where I find my Son-shine today, knowing God and God knowing me! I pray you find your Son-shine too.

 

God Bless You and God Bless America!
