I got up the other day and looked out the window to another day of rain. Although the rain is a bit uncomfortable for me it takes rain to produce growth. Similarly in our lives God allows occasional rain or uncomfortable circumstances for the sake of growing us. I am not sure what the forecast is in your life right now but be on the look out for “growing conditions”. The Apostle Paul reminds us that God uses everything in our lives to grow us including unfavorable conditions. Paul encourages us to lean on God instead of running for cover in other things or places during these times because of this promise, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”(Romans 8:28) I am praying for your success and your spiritual growth.
