no more clouds!

"The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." Deuteronomy 31:8

What is going on?  This Summer is filled with more clouds and rain than sunshine.  I don't ever remember having such a drab summer. Everyday, it's the same picture... gray, wet and dark. 

This reminds me of other dark seasons in my life. Days when ominous clouds just kept rolling in. 

Clouds of doubt, covering up the truth of who i am in Christ.
Clouds of fear, hiding the belief in God's wonderful plans for me.
Clouds of confusion, masking the truth i am precious to God. 
Clouds of despair, flooding hope for tomorrow.
Clouds of conflict, booming the phrase, "i am unworthy".
Clouds of defeat, lingering in my heart day-after-day.

What or Who can break these clouds of darkness?   God.
On cloudy days, it's easy to feel the beautiful blue sky has disappeared for good.  But when the clouds finally do part, we see the blue sky has not left or failed us. The same is true with God.  No matter how dismal or hard a season, God is still with us.  He has promised to never, never abandon us.  When i look up at the sky, i sometimes feel i can see His face looking down on me.

The clouds will lift; The Son has not left or forsaken us. Thank You, Father, for Your faithfulness, even when i am battling uncertainties.  Because of You, the clouds cannot stay over me forever.

have a Son-filled day!
