Above the Clouds

When we are experiencing difficulty everything can look dark and gloomy. Once I was at the airport and the weather was bad. It was early in the morning so it was dark anyway but in addition it was snowing. As I waited for my plane to be de-iced the excitement about my trip began to dim and I felt that it was ruined.

Shortly thereafter our plane took off and started climbing to cruising altitude. Not many minutes later I was above the mass of clouds that made everything on the ground seem bleak. Above those clouds the sun was shining and it was so bright. My hope lifted. This sight has stayed with me for nearly the past six years. It’s a reminder that we can’t let our current circumstances, what we see right in front of us, make us feel like “this is it”. Remember there is always a light that shines for us and that is the light of God. Just like that airplane He can lift us above what we are going through and allow us to see the hope. Our circumstances may not change immediately but thankfully neither does God.
