Rainy Days and Mondays
Do rainy days and Mondays always get you down like the Carpenters famous song says?
I’m not usually bothered by either, but last week,the clouds and rain were just getting to me. Once again God’s Word came in to fill the lonely spot in my heart.
Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.
By day the LORD directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life. (NIV)
When I need hope…
By day, God commands His love toward me.
By day, God orders His love toward me.
By day, God instructs His love toward me.
When I feel downcast…
When my heart is downcast or I feel lonely, I know where to turn. This source of love and encouragement is constant, dependable, never changing. I can count on Him. The thirst I feel when I’m downcast, the sadness that I sense can be filled by Him.
Psalm 90:14 “Satisfy us in the morning with Your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.” NIV
