Feels like nothing can go right.
That old saying "when it rains it pours."
All of us have had this feeling from time to time.
Like the rain is endless, we need an ark...
Some of us feel we are drowning in it.
Being washed away with stress, bills, burdens, and tribulations.
I recall many times when I have felt exactly like that.
All the worry and stress helped nothing in those situations.
It just caused me more turmoil, loss of sleep, and more anxiety.
Ive learned, Im still learning actually... When the rain comes, it wont be the first nor the last time.
Its always gonna come.
It will drizzle one day, sprinkle other days, and there are also times of heavy rain, major storms, even monsoons occur.
There is no way to avoid it happening. You can however put on a rain coat, rubber rain boots, or use an umbrella, roll up the windows, or take shelter to keep you from the rain and keep you safe.
Looking back I know that Jesus is just that for me. He is my umbrella, my safety from the storms.
He keeps me from drowning.
Even though it can be storming horribly around me.
He protects me from the worst of it.
So when it rains and pours in your life remember who your shelter is.
Lay your storm at His feet. Dont let fear and worry cause you more turmoil.
He has it, and He has you. Jesus can calm any storm, stop any issue, and fix any problem or burden you may have. When all seems bleak, He is still and always on the Throne.
He never said life would be without storms, but He did promise to walk through them with us.
So when the rain comes, because
It will come again.
Let Jesus be your umbrella, your raincoat, and your shelter.
Ask Him to place you in His ark and protect you until dry land appears again.
He is our hope and our protector.
He is always with us. No matter what it looks like around us.
No matter what we face. He is always in control.
