It’s going to be okay

I’m sitting in a coffee shop this morning. Outside the skies are stormy. I’ve walked through my share of rain the last few years. 

I think of you and whisper a prayer, “What should I write today?” And one sentence keeps coming back to my heart…

It’s going to be okay.

I wish I knew the details of your situation, wish you were across this table from me with a cup of something warm in your hand. But I know there’s One with you right now who is familiar with all of your circumstances.

He knows what you need today. 

Oh, He loves us.

So much.

And whatever we’re going through, 

He’s going to see us to the other side.

This storm– 

He’ll redeem every drop. 

He’ll turn it into new life, growth.

Every bit of rain is a flower waiting to happen.


Not at all. 


Not for us.

After years of storms, I’ve learned that much.

The barista says to a customer across the counter, “I was really wishing the sun would come out today.”

I glance at the sky and it’s still hiding. 

But it’s not gone.

I sip my coffee, stare at the clouds, and dare to hope

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this:  He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him. Psalm 37:4-7
