It was chilly. I wrapped my blanket tightly around my legs, and tried to wrap both my hands around my tea mug :) I spent a beautiful time with the LORD this morning, reading from Psalms, Zechariah, and Colossians. I prayed for many things, including an MAF family who I met yesterday.
|do you know how hard it was to keep the pages from blowing lol?|
And it made me think. It made me think of days where I am all overcast. When my temper is short, my brainspace is cloudy, and I am not doing well. And then, sometimes, even through all that, I can hear the LORD telling me to come to Him. To lay it all at His feet and let Him blow the clouds away. Sometimes I listen.
And when I do? It starts with prayer, maybe a little Bible reading. A little blue sky creeps out. Turning my thoughts away from myself. Those heavy clouds start to shift a little more. Giving thanks and praising the LORD. Those clouds are running for dear life as the blue sky chases them away to take over. And suddenly, look at where we are compared to where we were before.
It continues to blow my mind, how God can turn a day around.
If you're having one of those days, turn to Him, trust Him. If you let Him, He will bring out that blue sky ~ just for you!
Sing to God, sing in praise of his name,
extol him who rides on the clouds;
rejoice before him—his name is the Lord.
on a slightly ironic note, now that I'm finished this post, I looked out the window, and what do ya know? clouds again. with a little patch o' blue sky in the corner, slowly growing. some days are a battle, and those clouds will just keep coming, but don't let them stay there!
