Over the past few days, as I watch the Oklahoma weather do what it famously does, I’m reminded of an eternal truth. Even on the cloudiest, stormiest days, the sky remains above as blue as ever. Even when our human sight can’t see the promise of blue sky and sunshine, nothing can change the fact that it remains there.
Too often we allow the clouds and storms of life to affect us. That’s normal. But what we can’t let loose of is that the clouds will part, the sun will break through and the slightest hint of a magnificent rainbow is seen on the horizon.
Lest we ever forget, we’re provided these eternal words:
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6 (NIV)
Clouds are temporary; the blue skies are forever!
