A couple of days ago we saw an interesting sight. We looked out the window and saw that is was raining however instead of the sky being dark, it was bright and sunny out. It was really a beautiful sight, something you don't see very often. I tried to take a picture of it but the rain didn't show up very well in the photos.
This reminded me of something. Sometimes the rain and storms of life seem to be a never ending torrential down pour. We start getting discouraged and afraid. But then God sends us "a little sunshine", something to encourage us. Maybe it's a Bible verse you read in your devotions that day or an encouraging word from a friend. The rain may not stop right away or even slow down but the little rays of encouragement from God help you go on and persevere. Isn't God wonderful like that?
