After enduring a tough week as a nation, it rained.
On Saturday the rain was so heavy I felt it in my spirit. It was a take cover, check your drain, stay indoors type of rain.
After the rain was gone the sky reemerged clearer and more beautiful than ever. While looking out of my window I said, “I know there’s a rainbow somewhere.”
I can’t even front, last week was one of the hardest weeks I’ve experienced in a long time. Covid19, the long standing existence of racial injustice in this country, and everything else that comes with.
While there were bright moments during the week, at each turn I was reminded that you have to take the good with the bad, the joy with the sorrow and sometimes they’re running after each other like an uncomfortable game of tag. Each day I woke up feeling good but as the day went on, even as early as 8 am, sorrow would get tagged in and the day would take a dip.
But today, as I amass the courage to regroup, and the strength to endure I’m reminded that somehow somewhere ALL of this is working for our good.
The woes of the world have never stopped God.
So as you go through your week, please know that God is still in control and blessings are still showering down even at a time like this. God is not done. He has a plan when rain is coming down in sheets, as homes are destroyed, lives turned upside down and even when some lives are lost. Please know that in the midst of it all there’s a rainbow somewhere and God has it all under control.
