Today a friend said “Isn’t it a beautiful day?” That struck me. Normally, I would not say that pouring down rain and 40 degrees was a beautiful day. However, in light of the drought it was exactly the kind of day we needed. She was right it was beautiful.
I think it is all a matter of perspective. When we are in a drought rain is beautiful, in a flood the sun is a welcome relief. As humans we are like that as well. When things are tough we seek God. When they are not, we do not. In a perspective changing moment all that we have thought is one way becomes another. Our definitions change of what is beautiful and what is needed. I am glad that God doesn’t change like we do. He is a rock that is solid. He does not need to change the definitions. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. The drought does not ruffle him, he sends the rain. I am thankful that he sent us this beautiful day…I will rejoice and be glad in it.
