The Sky Is Still Blue

The most interesting things occur to me while walking my dog.  I have shared once before that when I am walking him alone, it is typically my quiet time to be with the Lord and this morning was no different.

This morning in Milwaukee, there was a heavy overcast and the wind was blowing pretty hard.  As I walked down the sidewalk, I happen to look into the gray ominous clouds and found a break in them.  It was just a small break, but what I saw was the beautiful blue sky and the bright white clouds high above the gray rain clouds.  Because the wind was blowing steadily, the break didn't last long.

It is something that happens all the time, but we typically do not recognize it.  When rain clouds move in your area, they are a different color and thick.  They blot out the blue sky and sometimes the sun as well.  Because the clouds are over our heads it is hard to think about what is behind them because we are caught up in the moment of preparing what could happen. What we fail to realize is that behind that storm cloud, the sky is still blue.  Behind that cloud of rain, the sky is still blue.  Behind that thunder and lightening cloud the sky is still blue!  It never changes (until dark of course).

This is how God is to us.  Even though we go through trials in life God never leaves us.  He has always been there with us.  Despite how cloudy it gets in life, God is still there.  No matter how trivial or violent the trial, God is still there.  He's there because He promised to never leave us out to dry.  In 1 Kings 8:56-58 it says,

(56) "Praise be to the LORD, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses. (57) May the LORD our God be with us as he was with our fathers; may he never leave us nor forsake us. (58) May he turn our hearts to him, to walk in all his ways and to keep the commands, decrees and regulations he gave our fathers.

Whatever it is God has purposed for your life it will come to past.  No matter what your current situation may be, continue to hold on to His words.  If you want, remind Him of His promises!   Always know that just as the sky is blue behind the dark clouds, God is still with you through the days of your life. 

Be blessed folks and have a good one!
