This weekend was supposed to be filled with baseball. Instead, it’s been filled with laundry, dishes, and TV. I’ve become a slave to my email… waiting for each weather update. So far, it hasn’t stopped raining.
I’ve been managing the day pretty well. I’m not stressing about what’s going to happen. I’m just trying to make the best use of my time right now. I really wanted to watch some 10U baseball today, but God had other plans.
Sometimes our lives are filled with rain delays. We want to be getting on with the plan… our plan, but God has something else in store. God’s plans are always better than ours, but waiting out that plan is hard. Granted, it’s harder for some than others. If we can just take ourselves out of the picture and realize that God has everything in His hands, maybe there would be a little less anxiety.
Next time God brings some rain in your life, take the time to enjoy it. Get a little wet… dance in it… dance through it… There’s always sunshine on the other side.
