It rained today, and like every other day since last month, it’s been quite a show.
It really isn’t the kinda of rain 🌧 that’s on your mind. At least not physically. Here’s how👇🏽
While it rained, I looked out my window and saw the trees bowing as the storm overwhelmed them as if to say they were crying for help, yearning to be saved from the so-called disaster that tried to snatch their souls. But then again, I looked and this time, not into the physical, but into deeper understanding.
This time, I saw not just the trees but something that caught my attention and in fact took my breath away.
And then I began to ponder on what was been whispered into my heart.
These trees were not screaming for help but in fact, they were worshipping their creator, the one who sent the storm. The one who seemed far from hearing their cry for help. And then it struck me. How do I respond in times of crisis?
Am I quick to wallow in fear and anxiety or calm enough to know that the one who sent the storm is indeed the One who’d calm the storm and bring me out refreshed and renewed.
I think you should answer those questions too.
Indeed, it rained today not just the regular kinda rain but one filled with wisdom from above, strength and courage to face every fear, situation and circumstance.
Don’t just get wet from the rain (crisis, hurt, difficult times), but choose to grow and produce fruit.
“But blessed is the man who trusts me, GOD, the woman who sticks with GOD. They’re like trees replanted in Eden, putting down roots near the rivers— Never a worry through the hottest of summers, never dropping a leaf, Serene and calm through droughts, bearing fresh fruit every season.”
Jeremiah 17:7-8 MSG
Until next time, keep evolving.
