It’s difficult when we are going through something painful to see the light at the end. The pain aches, like salt on an open wound. All we can see is that job we lost, the loved one who passed, the bills we can’t pay, the people we can’t change, the hurts we’ve endured, the heartache…
When the rain is falling in torrents, and the sky is black above…it’s difficult to see the ending of the storm. It’s difficult to see the rays of sunlight beaming out behind the clouds of disappointment.
But I have good news for you! There is sunlight behind our clouds, and the edge of the storm may seem far away, but it’s closer than you think. God is there, and we don’t always understand what His reasons are because He says that His ways and our ways are nothing alike.
Isaiah 55:8-9, For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
So let us always hold fast to the profession of our faith, because our Lord never said it would be easy. No matter what is going on in your life today, remember that God knows, and Jesus Himself suffered many things, including torment and death so that He could understand our sorrows, and so we could have the promise of eternal life in heaven with our heavenly family, and most of all, our Lord.
