Wednesday Word

This was a different Easter. Perhaps the clouds and rain dampened your spirit, ruined your hair or cancelled your sunrise service.  But, you know, it is for those cloudy mornings that Easter exists.  Sure, we all want picturesque sunrises and warm feelings of security.  I don’t know about you, but that’s not where so much of life exists.  I’m glad that God meets me in those dark moments of uncertainty and the puddles of disappointment to remind me to walk on, that He is control and I can trust His promises.

Easter’s joy, peace, promise and power transcend the clouds of life and can brighten the darkest soul. That might be just where God wants us to find Him and know His presence.

Besides, did you ever notice (Acts 1) that Jesus left on a cloud? Better than that, it’s in the clouds that we will meet him (I Thessalonians 4) when He comes back for us.  Now – I’m not advocating for a rainy spring.  However, I am going to be thankful even on cloudy days.  That’s my takeaway from this Easter.
