I couldn’t help but remember a famous line from one of my favorite movies, while reading this scripture. Doesn’t it sound like Scarlett saying, “I’ll think about that tomorrow. Tomorrow is another day.” I love her undying optimism. And the Lord does too.
“For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” Psalm 30:5
While dealing with difficult times or struggling with stress or arguments, just remember, that the Lord is good. That even in hard times, when we want to weep and cry for ourselves, remember that this is the most important time to plant a seed, and witness to others. If you think about it, when we struggle, this is when others watch us most. They want to see how we, as Christians, handle a tough situation. And if we show them how the Lord is working through us, and explain to others how the Lord is giving us strength during hard times, then we are planting seeds. Doing this will not only make us feel better, but like the scripture says, He will rejoice come morning. Just remember, the petty things that we nag and worry about, these things will pass. Always remember the big picture. Like Scarlett says, “tomorrow is another day.” And usually by the next day, you’ve forgotten all about what you were dealing with, and if not, if it is a bigger issue (even say cancer), always remember to pray. He will answer your prayers. And if you feel he hasn’t answered them, remember, that your time and His time may be different. Be patient, there may be a reason the Lord hasn’t answered it. Remember, we don’t always see the bigger picture, but He does. And always watch for His signs around you…and open doors.
