I’m squinting against a shaft of late sunshine. I could close the blinds but it won’t last much longer as it drops behind the trees. I can wait.
July is a month that often brings rain. Years ago we stopped taking our vacations in July because we could never count on good camping weather. So this month’s constant sunshine is a treat.
On our Island trip late in June the skies constantly changed – a little sun, a lot of cloud, and even a memorable sunset or two.
Some of the clouds billowed about and could have seemed menacing, but they had their own unique beauty. I decided it’s good to remember not all turbulence in life is threatening. Sometimes, like the stones and seaglass along the shore, we can benefit by a little tumbling even if it’s unsettling at the time.
There are both friends and family members who are feeling very unsettled right now. Life is turbulent for them. I’m trusting God’s promises and praying that the storms will pass and skies will soon be clear again.
Writing, work, waiting, health, moving… is something clouding up your life right now?
Trust in the Lord forever,
for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.
Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him, and he will act.
Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us.
