“Righteous people will rejoice. They will jump for joy before God. They’ll be jubilant with great rejoicing.” Psalm 68:3
Those that live in the NW Arkansas area know how incredible the colors are right now with the leaves changing colors. Experts say that this year the colors are brighter and more vibrant than they have been in a long time because of all the rain we had earlier in the year.
This got me to thinking about what those trees endured thru the year. Strong winds, heavy rains, scorching heat, and more. The heavy rain poured down on these trees were a big part of making them what they are today.
I find great encouragement in this today, being reminded that seasons of rain bring great beauty. Looking at the beautiful colors, it’s as if the trees, in all their weather tested beauty, are shouting praises to the Creator.
Praise Him even in the storm, change is coming.
