Over the last couple of days, we have had some gloomy weather, along with some rainy days. And as I listened to the rain drops, I had this song stuck in my head. The song is called, Open Up The Sky, and the chorus of the song says: “Open up the sky, fall down like rain, we don’t want blessings, we want You”. As I listened to this song over and over again, I could not help but realize that many times I don’t always live life that way. Every Sunday we gather as a faith community to sing songs of praise and worship to our King. We pray bold and courageous prayers and most importantly, we listen to God’s word. I often confuse what I want with what God wants for me, and as I continue to grow as a person and a Leader, my desire is to seek the Lord and nothing more.
So, in the midst of dark, gloomy and rainy days, allow God’s love to radiate through it all. His goodness and love for you will surpass anything and everything. Because of that, nothing else matters. It is my prayer that whether your life is filled with joy or with sorrow, you would experience the tremendous love God has for you. Remember that earthy things do not matter, they just fade and shatter.
Singing a joyous song,
