Greetings Prayer Warriors,
I'm sitting in a cafe in rainy Southern California today, contemplating the irony of my getting away from the rainy Pacific Northwest in search of sun, only to end up leaving the sun and landing in rain. I guess one just has to trust in the Lord's plan.
Light is sweet! And it is pleasant for the eyes to see the sun.
Like the weather, marriage isn't always what you are expecting. Stretches of sunshine can be followed by clouds, storms, and gloom. But if one perseveres in prayer, with all humility, the light of the Son will break through bringing the hope of a new dawn. Like the beauty of a dove soaring to new heights, the Spirit will lift you up, if only you surrender your will.
So humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. Cast all your worries upon him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7
Trust in the LORD forever! For the LORD is an eternal Rock. Isaiah 26:4
I guess one just has to trust in the Lord's plan. He knew it was better to send rain to quench the fires of Southern California than to fulfill my personal desire for a couple days of sun. He also knows that you can weather the storms of marriage if you trust in His plan.
Pray that you will be given the grace to trust in the plan the Lord has for your marriage.
Peace, Joy, and Love,
Keep praying. Pass it on.
