I’ve often looked out my window
and watched the rains pour
covering the earth with much needed moisture
for all the flowers to grow.
And my heart has sung songs of rejoicing
just thinking of the colorful blooms and fragrant flowers.
But when troubles abound and burdens are heavy
do I often think about the blessings to follow?
Sadly, I don’t.
But I’m beginning to see
that this is exactly what I need to do.
Yes, as those trials bear heavy on my weary soul
and it’s difficult to keep putting one foot in front of the other
and the rains of problems and difficulties increase
and the stormy challenges grow.
It is then that we must remember to think past the storm
and remember the flowers of blessings
To think beyond the burden to the fragrant graces that will surely come.
The Father blows His love across the storms in our lives
always bringing forth beauty and blessing to those who trust in Him.
How about you?
Do you see the possibilities?
The fragrant graces?
Look beyond the present problem
and see the fruit.
Join me, won’t you, in looking beyond the storm.
See His Love across the storm.
It makes all the difference.
