The saying goes that April showers, which we tend to complain about, bring us May flowers. Also without rain there are no rainbows. No one doesn't like to see a beautiful rainbow after a storm. Sometimes bad stuff brings good stuff. Everyone always seems to like and want good weather similar to how we like to have good things happen in life. When bad stuff happens or things go wrong we tend to gripe and complain. It is in the hard times of life that we learn and grow. When we make a mistake we learn from it, or should.
If we expect to have water to drink, water for swimming pools, fresh produce in the grocery store, running water to shower in and a host of other things then we will need those 'showers'. For some, only when tragedy occurs in their lives or lives of loved ones do they even think about praying or running to God for comfort.
1 Peter 1:6-7 reminds us "In this you greatly rejoice though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials, these have come so that your faith, of greater worth. Than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire, may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed."
Are you able to rejoice in the 'showers' of life?
PRAYER: Lord Jesus I thank you and praise you for both the good things ad bad things in life. I know and trust you that all things have a purpose and will work out. In Jesus name. Amen.
