When I rolled out of bed today, I glanced at the gloomy summer sky. I mentally changed the day’s plans, but gave thanks for free garden watering.
I pondered the ironic word of the day:
On bright, blue-skied days, I take the sun for granted. When the sky is gray, I’m focused on, “Just when will that sun come out?”
But the sun is always there. I know my astronomy facts and I take it by faith.
I also have bright soul days….and dull, gray times.
It’s amazing how one tiny cloud – a cross word or perceived failure– can obscure the cheerfulness of a day.
And, it’s fascinating how a piece of good news, a kind word, or a small victory can brighten things.
Bright or gloomy, happy or sad, up or down, God is always there.
No matter how things look, or how I feel, my Source of energy exists in sovereign power.
He is perfectly in control.
He never changes, never naps, and never leaves.
“For I, the Lord, do not change.” Malachi 3:6

“Fear not, for I am with you…” Isaiah 41:10
