bad days better

I have come home the past few days feeling frustrated, defeated, tired, overwhelmed...all of those negative and yucky adjectives people usually use to describe teachers. But then I checked my email and received a genuine answer to a prayer that has been on my heart for years. 

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, and His love endures forever.
 
And then I put on some music and started allowing the Lord to remind me of His truth through the words of the amazingly talented duo Shane and Shane. I made a playlist of Shane and Shane on Grooveshark and then put it on shuffle. The first song that "randomly" played, "Bad Days Better" has now been on repeat for the last ten minutes. And the Holy Spirit just reminded me, once again, that my heavenly Father sees everything. He hears my every cry and catches every single tear that falls from my eyes. But get this. It started raining. For the first time in probably 3 weeks. The heavens opened up and brought forth beautiful refreshment. What strikes me is that the sky didn't even appear to be full of rain clouds today. The clouds were strikingly beautiful, actually. But the scent of the rain coming through my window and front door is intoxicatingly (Yes, I just made up a word.) good.

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, and His love endures forever.

Over and over again, the Lord has whispered to my heart, "Rest in me, for the seasons of refreshment are coming." And this afternoon, He gave me a little taste of just what that refreshment is going to look like. 

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, and His love endures forever.

I don't know what you might be going through or if life is just a cakewalk for you right now, but be reminded of this: The Lord is good, and His love endures forever. 


"Bad Days Better" 
by Shane and Shane

You have made my day
Even in stormy weather
I’m dancing in all the rain
Cause you make bad days…

Great is the way
When you come to mind
I am smiling ear to ear
Sweet thoughts of you
I’m always in the mood
To twirl around with you
While it’s raining
Even if it’s a dream

Great is the way
That I am unafraid
When I see you
All my fear goes away

Bad days are coming
Rainy days are always around
But if I can see you
One glance upon you
The sun comes out

I’m dancing in all the rain
Cause you make bad days better
