Bad moods can lead to pretty bad days, at least in my life.
Let me set the scene for you… Early December, freezing, constant rain, Monday morning, early… get the picture? Avoiding Bad Moods 101: DO NOT participate in any activities including the above!!!
I even saw a Facebook status stating, “When it rains, it pours.” Amen, right?
As my morning began today, I was not nearly as bright as sunshine. In fact, pretty gray!! (and not fun to deal with!!) But I began to see some hope in the way it laid itself out:
1) K-Love playing Laura Story’s “Blessings”
The line “What if your blessings come through raindrops? What if healing comes through tears..” really hit home. Can it be that these days we see as terrible and no good are the best of all? That is a beautiful thing!! I am always waiting for the right moment, the best moment, for life to really hit the high point! But maybe the highest point (where God is working the most) is in the lowest point of all..
2) A children’s book.
Obviously, it is a verse paraphrased.. but it came to me by way of a work of literature made for ages 4 and under. Sometimes that is exactly what we need- simplicity 🙂
God is in control!!
Maybe in all areas of life the Lord of all lords is closest when we are the furthest away, or the most down. Wow.
Think about it.
Thanks so much for reading!
