Sometimes the Rains
by Randy Chambers, 2014-07-12
Matthew 5:44-45, NIV: But I tell you: Love your enemies and
pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.
He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the
righteous and the unrighteous.
Sometimes the rains come softly. Sometimes they come in fierce torrents.
Regardless of where we are today, we know that there will be days we fall
beneath the shadows of the storms. And as the storms prevail, we sometimes
stand—we sometimes watch—we sometimes wonder if we shall make it through. Yet,
we know just as with many storms before, this too shall pass. And once the sky
has cleared and the sun breaks through, we rest and enjoy the season of peace.
And as we see new growth, we know the storms were not for nothing. The storms of
life are hard and often seem relentless. But new hope always will emerge with
the coming of the Son.
