As I think about this feeling of gray, I'm reminded of a flight I took recently. The sky was overcast and dark. As we took off it was hard to see anything other than the fog that overtook our plane. Within moments we broke through the clouds and there is was, the beautiful and radiant sun. In the moment of takeoff, the environment felt so far removed from the warmth of the sun. The reality was that the sun was always there to provide light and warmth, it was just beyond what I could physically see when surrounded by the clouds of the day.
Now back to my personal rainy day. God is still ever present for me, even though my emotions and attitude may prevent me from seeing His glory in my circumstances. My spirits can be lifted, if I can just push past those clouds and reach for God's warm embrace. In your rainy days I pray that you will find the strength to find the sun.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. - Romans 15:13
