As I was driving home from taking the little man to school, I heard an advertisement on the radio for one of the leading auto parts stores. Their slogan proudly claims “Free battery installation, even in weird weather!” I had to chuckle. The announcer had just explained that “weird weather” as one of those days when it’s half cloudy, half sunny and the sun’s shining even though it’s raining. Yeah….I know those days.
Do you ever have those days? When things are just weird? I have those days. You know, the ones with enough bad stuff to make you grumble, but enough good stuff to make you thankful and you end up standing there scratching your head wondering what, exactly, God is doing. As I giggled at the eager announcer this morning, I found myself very thankful that God works in weird weather too.
Our lives will change. Some days we won’t know which end is up. But, God never changes! Malachi 3:6a says “I am the Lord, and I do not change.” (NLT) See….I told you so! He is good. Yesterday, today, tomorrow. He can’t be anything but good. And He can’t do anything outside of love, because He is love. (1 John 4:8) So, if you’re experiencing weird weather, hang onto God. He’s in control and He loves you. And, I’m pretty sure we can trust His promises more than the batter-installation dude!
Be blessed and tell someone you love them.
