So yesterday I went to City front (its this outreach thing we do. We go to the nearest city (which is like 15 minutes from where I am) and go downtown on a saturday night and walk around talking to people and seeing if they need/want any prayer and then we also hand out sandwiches.) So I went to city front and me and the guy I was walking around with (cause girls cant just walk around the city by themselves.) we just... well walking around. Suddenly we saw lightening. I was like "It can't rain!" And the guy was like "Well it will probably will." So we sat there waiting for two other people to meet us since they were unable to meet at the school. Just as the two people we were waiting for happened to show up, the clouds just SPLIT OPEN!!!! I mean it was raining cats, dogs, gerbils, and bunnies! It was crazy! We were soaked in seconds! So we just decided to walk to another group that doesn't walk around. And of course when we got there it basically stopped raining. So me and my friend decided to walk around the city some more.
However I got to thinking, everyone say "When it rains it pours."
We also always say that it was pouring when it rained. Even when we have been through worse and not so bad "pourings" of rain. Take Noah. When it rained for the first time in life and it just started drizzling (unless the sky just split open and didnt do the gradual thing) I am sure Noah was like "Oh my gosh! This rain is crazy!!!" and of course it just kept getting worse. So when we get to a rock and a hard place in our life, we sometimes describe bad thing after bad thing happening as "When it rains it pours" but really, since God never gives us more than we can handle. (Just enough to stretch us) its only "pouring" on us because he have never been in worse. And we have to remember that the rain will always stop eventually and at the end of every rain storm there is always always a rainbow... We just have to open our umbrellas and sit out the storm, and just keep bringing our problems to God. With the knowledge that the rainbow is sure to come any day now. :)
