Thru the clouds, seeing the "Son"
This past Saturday, I was in Winston-Salem watching my daughter Lindsay play soccer when I got sick with heat exhaustion. I don't remember too much about the last game. I made photos that I can't recall. Well, on the way home I was terrible sick on my stomach, not to mention upset with myself for letting me get this way. I rode in the back of the Montana, lying on my side looking to the back of the vehicle, once in a while looking up and out the window. I cried and cried most of the way home. I was in the pity-party mode. When we got close to Pilot-Mountain I saw that it was raining. I got my camera out and made some photos of this passing storm. I watched as the sun just kept on shining through the clouds. And remember, I was on a pity party!!! I thought of how Jesus shines through all the tough times in our lives. He never stops shining. He is "ever present" through the storms. All we need to do is call upon him, and he is there. I don't call upon him enough. I try to solve my problems by myself through worldly ways, and as my pastor said last night, all we need to do is fall down and humble ourselves before him. It is not unusal to try to solve our own problems, and serve our own purpose. I'll be the first to raise my hand and say I do that. I need to depend on God, not myself. I need to be dependent on him, and seek him for the answer. I need to let the "Son" shine in...right? Good day!!
