MIDWEEK MESSAGE – April 3, 2023

There is a song by the Temptations entitled “My Girl, “and the opening lyrics are

“I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day.”  

We are often blessed to get God shots that feel like a beam of sunshine on a cloudy day. It is God’s way of reminding us that It is always present and we are never alone. I had that happen to me this past weekend. 

I received some disappointing news on Saturday, and then, to top it all off, I lost my phone.

I don’t know about you, but I am lost without my phone. After searching all Saturday afternoon and evening, I gave up and just turned it over. 

Sunday morning came, and I still could not find my phone, so I left for a morning meeting. I got a couple of blocks away and realized I had forgotten my hearing aids (yes, I do wear them), and although I wanted to forget about them, a little voice nudged me to go back and get them.

I thought the phone had to be there as I entered my room. Then, another thought came to look in the laundry hamper. I started taking my clothes out, and there was my phone! I know that the inner voice telling me to look in the laundry basket was a ray of sunshine God sent me on a cloudy day. It was a quiet whisper saying, “I got you.”

So, like the Rolling Stones so wisely said, “We may not get what we want, but we get what we need .”

Quote of the Week

“This, too, is Good; this too is God; and this too is for me, and I demand to see the blessing in it.”
