Today's forecast calls for light showers!
So I was thinking alot today, mainly because we were really slow at work, but I got to thinking of my current situation and how I sometimes felt like I was going through this storm in my life and couldn't figure out why God was putting us through this. Why did I have to leave the only place I have ever known, leave our house, my family, our friends, our church family! Then I thought how selfish of me and that I really don't think what I am going through is a storm it is more of a light shower. Sometimes I will feel like I am going through this huge storm in my life and God will put someone right there to show me that I do not have it bad at all, and I see the faith of the people he has shown me, it is purely amazing! Well I have this awesome 20 min ride to work in the mornings and I get time to talk to my Lord and Savior and He put a verse on the radio that really struck out to me. For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him ~Philippians 1:29. That last part really got to me, that I may have to suffer for him. Now I think that we all will be called to suffer in many different ways, your might be different than mine or be harder to go through but there is one thing that is the same, that God is always there and our suffering is not for nothing, it is to bring God glory! And then there is this verse that is just awesome. Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance ~ James :2-3. So lately I have been trying really hard to just think of my situation and instead of thinking, why is God putting me through this, I am trying to think, how can this bring glory to Him! Some days are harder than others but trying to have this mind set has really helped me try to be more positive so that His glory will shine. So for today's forecast I am seeing sunny skies :)
