Enjoy the rains

rain

It rained a lot. I sure loved the weather but it was a lot and it kept falling. Steady. Persistent. Never letting up. Life is like the weather sometimes, all you see is the rain. The drizzle of everyday demands or the downpour of need and pain. When the season of rain comes, there is nothing you can do about it. You just weather the storm. Not always easy, considering the mud patches that come with the rain.

So instead of willing it to stop, get an umbrella!

Draw from the Wells inside you, you have reservoirs of grace and strength.
Hope is not a myth.
Faith is not a fable.

You have need of courage.
The road may be slick and vision impaired.It’s okay, keep going on. The steps of the righteous are ordered.
Maintain your smile .
Focus on the beauty of the lightening. Listen to the drum-roll of the Thunder.
God is working behind the scenes.

It is alright. Rains come and sometimes when it’s raining on the inside, realize that God loves you and he cares. In the storm, He is your anchor.┬á He will never leave. So, when you feel drenched, remember that He is right beside you. He knows how you feel and there is already an umbrella in His Word. The sun has come and it will be alright.

Enjoy the rains,don’t complain!
It’s the season for growth!
Enjoy your day!

Sinking to His Depths

Navy seals have this saying that under pressure,you don’t rise to the occasion, you sink to the level of your training. Going through pressure,stress or intense pain brings out the raw and real you.It reveals character in its truest form. It is a mirror of where you stand and the state of your heart.

Do you turn tail and run?
Do you hide?
Do you go out of your mind?
Do you take it in stride?

Are you stoic, nothing revealed under a facade of calm?
Indulge in a vice hoping temporary pleasure will ease the hurt?

Or do you sink to the depths of His love and anchor there?

The motions are no strangers to me. Been there, done that. Written my name on the path of pain.But I encourage you as I encourage me. Sink to the depths of his Love. Find rest, find peace. He is your steady and your steadfast. When heart and flesh fail you, Jesus is your faithful strength.

Remember this and fall, underneath are everlasting arms.There is purpose to this pain. Don’t worry, He never leaves.

Rejoicing comes in the morning.
