Took an early walk this morning and sat down on a big rock – thought I would watch the sun come up and have a little talk with Jesus. I wanted to take a picture as it’s bright light peeped over the trees. Unfortunately, it was cloudy and started to sprinkle rain. I was disappointed. And when I saw the power lines would be smack in the middle of my picturesque photo I was disappointed again because they were in the way of my view. But I took the photo anyway. Sometime later as I was looking back at the photo Jesus had a little talk with me. I saw things through a different lens. The power pole looks like a cross and those lines carry the power.
With disappointment sometimes comes revelation. Even when, or especially when, disappointment stacks up on you Jesus is there sending His Power and light. He is my source alone for all my needs.
Daddy once told me “just because you can’t see the sun doesn’t mean it’s not there. It’s just on the other side of the clouds”. Count your many blessings name them one by one. It’s guaranteed to put joy in your heart.
