Today I got back to my car on the top floor of the parking deck right after turning in one of my last assignments. I could see that there was a storm coming so I decided to wait, sit in my car, and watch it (there's a great view of Harrisonburg from this spot).
One. two. The first drops of the storm appeared. They came quickly after that, my windshield now covered with rain drops. Then came the storm. A downpour, almost impossible to see anything through the window. There was no end in sight.
Then slowly, I was able to see out the window again. The raindrops stopped falling as heavily, and I could look up and see the clouds moving quickly away.
Then it stopped. The storm was over and the sun shined its rays once more.
These next few months won't be easy. In fact, they will probably suck. All the people you got so close to over these past few years will be spread out all over the country, even the world. Our casual schedules will become 9 to 5s. This place of comfort will no longer be our home.
But as these storms come, look at the moving clouds. These seasons of our lives are temporary. Christ will shine through in these situations. He will show you all the glory that will soon be revealed to you and all the goodness that is to come in your life. It is absolutely terrifying, and sometimes we can't see what's next, but we need to place our faith on his sovereign plan.
