It wouldn’t be Michigan if it weren’t 80 degrees one day and a rainy 50 degrees the next. Sounds about right! Yesterday was cold and rainy… and it was a long day. Sometimes I let the weather shape my mood more than I should. Guess I should work on that.
But I was reading some notes I had written a few weeks ago, when I was having “one of those days.” I’m pretty sure it was raining that day, too—yep, gotta work on that.
Anyways, the remedy I found that day was in the Psalms. The Psalms have a unique way of reminding me that God is bigger than the rainy weather, and that He is worthy to be trusted amidst all of “those” days.
In my notes, I wrote down a few words from some of my favorite Psalms. And although they may be short, they sure pack a lot of heat. Take a look:
31:24 “Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the Lord.”
18:46 “Blessed be the rock; The Lord lives! Exalted be the God of my salvation.”
34:8 “Oh taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!”
62:1-2 “For God alone my soul waits in silence; form Him comes my salvation. He only is my Rock and my Salvation; I will not be shaken!”
That last one, Psalm 62, goes on for twelve verses, reminding me of God’s faithfulness, power, and protection. He is a safe place in which to wait. This song—taken from Psalm 62—is one of my favorites.
Are you having “one of those days?” Look to the Word of God and find rest in God alone—even on the rainy days.
