Do you ever have one of those days where everything seems right in the world?
I had one of those kinds of days today and it was a reminder to me that God isn’t done writing my story. He keeps giving me glimpses of his beauty and his perfection. In the squish of homemade playdough through tiny hands. In the laughter of friends. In the rejoicing of cancer-free news. In the preaching of God’s Word. In the voices lifted in praise. In sharing a meal with friends. In the warmth of the sun on my uplifted face. In the late afternoon rain shower that produced the loveliest of rainbows.
Glimpses of his goodness. Evidence that he has not forgotten me. Reminders that he is putting me back together again.
I hope you are seeing those glimpses today too.
There were days during this past year when I thought I would never have a day like this again. But I now realize how true it is that God does not take us into a dark valley and leave us there. No! He walks with us through it, leading us, guiding us, loving us.
Keep looking for those glimpses of his goodness. They are there. And one day, he will remind you that you made it through and he never left you.
