It is a rainy morning....like the kind you can hear coming down hard outside your window kinda morning. I have always loved heavy rains - the sound of them, the smell of them - they are just relaxing to me. But I dont like driving in them!
Puddles scare me & I'm always afraid I'm going to spin out when I hit a big one. I also hate when it rains so hard that your wipers cant keep the window clean & I feel like I have to get up close to the steering wheel to see better.
I was sitting at a stop light & I was watching the rain drops hit my window - the wiper would come across, wipe it clean, but before it could even make the return trip back across the window, rain drops were all over it again.
A little later, the rain had slowed where the wipers had cleaned it totally & then the rains picked back up, & even on high, there was NO WAY the wipers even looked like they were working.
WOW - I could see how problems hit us like that. Sometimes, they come down where we can handle them, wipe them out quickly....sometimes, they come faster where we can wipe them out but other problems keep arising.... & then, there are the storms of life! Where no matter what you do, you cant get on top of it! You feel overwhelmed - like nothing is working - you almost think, "Why bother?".......
I ran in my work for cover & am still watching the rain.... & it hit me.... the rain isn't going to last forever.... the sky will clear again.... the sun will come out & dry everything up....everything will be calm again soon.....
If you are going through a storm right now & you feel like your "wipers" arent doing anything to clear that window - hang in there.... God will be bringing out that sun soon.... you'll be OK... blue skies WILL return!
