Wouldn’t it be nice when we face the storms of life if our purpose was greater than the crashing around us?
The key is letting our purpose be great while the sun is still shining. Isaiah 40:31 says, "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." If today, while the breeze is refreshing and sunlight dapples the trees, we begin waiting on the Lord-- not sitting with hands folded, but SERVING Him-- then when the storms of life come, we can whip out an old adage, give it fresh meaning, grin, and with delight in our hearts declare, "This is for the birds!"
Tip/Tidbit: We all face trouble, but we don’t have to let trouble steal our song, stifle or worship, or hinder our purpose. Instead, let’s keep our focus, plant our feet, flap our wings, and keep on keeping on. Setting our eyes on the prize, we can put the clouds and rain into perspective: They are temporary; the Son is still shining, and we will soon feel the warmth of His radiance.
