(told through Lynne)
In the wake of not getting the job in Scotts Valley, I was spending some time reflecting on God's goodness in my life. I picked up my "Jesus Calling" devotional and read the following excerpt:
No matter what your circumstances may be, you can find Joy in My Presence. On some days Joy is generously strewn along your life-path, glistening in the sunlight. On days like that, being content is as simple as breathing the next breath or taking the next step. Other days are overcast and gloomy; you feel the strain of the journey, which seems endless. Dull gray rocks greet your gaze and cause your feet to ache. Yet Joy is still attainable. Search for it as for hidden treasure....
... Awareness of My marvelous Companionship can infuse Joy into the grayest day.
Can you believe this message? On this very day? When it was pouring rain outside this morning? Coincidence... I think NOT!
The Son is shining through the clouds.
