Every Blessing

“yet our God turned the curse

into a blessing.”

NEHEMIAH 13:2 ESV

After a solid week of rain, Saturday morning brought with it sunshine and clear blue skies. We ran through the grass with bare feet for the sheer joy of it! My God loves me like that. On the dark, rainy days when I face hardship and adversity, clouds of doubt, fear, jealousy, and pride hover over me. But unlike the sunshine, His love for me cannot be hidden.  After lunchtime, we watched as clouds gathered again and the skies opened up…but this time, I no longer saw loss, but opportunity. As I face hardship, and look toward Jesus, He turns thundershowers into a fount of blessing. And I am washed in His love!
