I Noticed

I saw it coming out of the wind and rain. A sign. An opening in the clouds appeared.

A ray. Slim, tentative, gathering other rays. to speak through the opening. Speak to me?

Just a word for the dark, rainy, windy, angry day. Just a word for the good, bad, sometimes great, beautiful, gloomy, nearing the end game of life.

Just a word gathering past the finale coming from the sun. Just a word coming from the Son. God cares. He really does you know. When you notice, you can feel it inside. It’s bone deep and heart felt.

Big storm, small Rays, big sun (Son)

Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Romans 5:5

But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.  We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair;  persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed 2Corinthians 4:7-9

 Sometimes we need the storm to notice the Son. May your clouds part, if only for a small a ray of hope. Remember where those rays come from!

  1. Thanks Stephanie. Someday we will find out all those connections in life and God we completely missed. Maybe there will be hand on forehead moments in heaven?


  2. Beautiful! I love how the sky speaks to us. I was with the youth group at an outdoor Christian concert where it had been threatening rain all day. Carrie Jobe was singing the glorious Resurrection song, “Forever,” and as she was singing out triumphantly “He is alive! He is alive!” the dark clouds parted and beams of light came bursting through. ❤

  3. What a great moment. God so delights in perfectly timed moments. From Little preludes of worship to coming to get us. Even our death here and eternities gates open there. Some days the skys seem giddy with excitement.
