The sun will not always be shining in our lives. It storms and rains from time to time. It is through those times when life’s most meaningful and tender lessons are taught to us. It is in our storms where we strengthen and enlarge our faith. We are shown the bigger picture. We can then understand that it is not about us. Selfishness becomes selflessness. Our boastful attitudes transform into a more humble spirit. Storms and rain teach us how to appreciate and not take the sunshine for granted. Thank the Lord for both, for both are still a great display of His grace and mercy at work!
