This morning the sky is so blue and clear! It is a little chilly outside, but while I was driving the warm sun was pouring through the windows of my car. I LOVE this weather! In fact yesterday afternoon I had the kids do their homework on the driveway because I wanted to soak up the spring warmth of the sun for a few minutes after being inside all day. While I was driving this morning enjoying the warmth of the sun, a verse came to me.
Psalm 18:24 “This is the day that the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it!”
I was encouraged by the verse, and my thoughts turned quickly to how easy it is to rejoice and be glad when things are sunny. How vibrant and alive I can feel in the warmth and hope of spring. Then on the contrary, how difficult and how much work it can be to rejoice during dreary weather or when things are difficult when my faith is exercised and tested.
But this day, I am encouraged and thankful for the warmth of the sun that reminded me of the warmth the SON brings to my heart through His Words and through His creation.
So this day, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. “ Romans 15:13
