😎🐫🎤 Sunday morning I decided to go for a walk. It was 72, sunny, a slight breeze and the gravel road was shaded from the trees in the forest. I headed out of the cabin and was only about 30 seconds away when I heard the sound of rain drops hitting the leaves. It didn’t take long for the rain to also fall on me. I immediately turned to head back to the cabin. That’s our instinct right, head for safety so we don’t get caught in the rain. It took me a second, but I stopped, looked up and realized the sky was blue. So why was it raining?  I remembered it had rained pretty hard in the early morning.  The rain I was experiencing was simply the fallout from a previous storm. I turned around and continued on my walk.  How true is this in our lives? When we find ourselves being caught up in the fallout of ours or someone else’s past storms, we don’t want to get wet, so our instinct is to run.  What would happen if we chose to stay this time and allow ourselves to get a little wet.  How can we find God in the fallout and allow His words and actions be our guide?  I’m sure God will bless you in some way as He blessed me last Sunday.  Once again God used nature to teach me a life lesson. As long as we are here on this earth, I know that God has more for us to learn and do for the glory of His kingdom. Keep listening for His words. He speaks to us in many ways.  But don’t keep them to yourself. More times than not, He’s counting on you to pass those words/lessons/experiences along. Bless others and be blessed.
