You wake up with stiffness in your aging back. The kids refuse to move as fast as you’d like, which is now making you late for work. You hurry to your car only to hear that dreaded sound, ‘click … click’. In a matter of minutes, your hopeful morning feels as though it is falling apart before your very eyes.
That old saying your mom taught you comes to mind “when it rains it pours.” And, in that moment, the feels like reality. All you want to do now is curl up in dispair to the sound of pouring rain that your life currently feels like.
Maybe that torrential downpour is not intended for you to hide or shelter from. Maybe it’s your opportunity to show what your made of and where your faith lies. Because, rain or shine, God is still there.
