“Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” Psalm 30:5b (NIV)
When you think of Hawaii, what comes to mind?
Beaches? Pineapples? Don Ho?
How about Rain?
Hawaii actually has a “rainy season”, which typically runs from November through March. Frommers.com describes it this way:
“…the rainy season can bring enough gray weather to spoil your tanning opportunities. Fortunately, it seldom rains in one spot for more than 3 days straight.”
Three days straight?!
Perhaps, like me, you are going through a rainy season.
And you’re wishing it would ONLY last for three days.
Take heart, Friend.
This rainy season won’t last forever.
How do I know?
Check out the rest of the Psalm:
“Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me; Lord, be my help. You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise you forever.” Psalm 30:10-12 (NIV)
Our Heavenly Father may allow us to go through a rainy season, but He will be right beside us, covering us with His endless umbrella of Love.
May we never forget to praise Him, even in this storm.
Especially in this storm.
