Rain!….Rain!

Monday Morning Coffee©

Happy Monday people!
Grab your hot coffee! …Let’s reflect! Weddings postponed, jobs lost, contracts on hold etc. Has this pandemic blown your best laid out plans out of sync?….You are not alone!

Mary was set to marry, her childhood sweetheart, wedding invites had been sent out and it was now public knowledge. Suddenly God changed the plans and Mary was now to birth a child out of wedlock! Her reputation was at stake! What would people say? How would she explain this?

God will oftentimes rain on our parade because He wants to parade His own glory. Mary submitted herself to God’s will and we should also do the same

“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled. (Luke 1:38)

Remember! God has no bad weather, even the thunderstorms (and pandemics) serve His purpose!

Sometimes our brollies’ need to come out on Parade Day…..Let it rain Lord!

PRAYER FOR THE WEEK
O Lord You hold the whole world in Your hands. I humbly submit my plans to you, interrupt them as and when You see fit in a way that Your name is glorified, and help me to be thankful.

Name Your Hurricane

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday good people! I have often wondered how and why hurricanes are given their names.

This morning let’s remember Jonah; the only man known to have been swallowed by a fish and live to tell the tale! Jonah was running from God’s will; as a matter of fact running in the opposite direction, so God sent ‘Hurricane Jonah’ to hunt him down! God caused also Jonah to be swallowed by a big fish that vomited him onto the shores of Nineveh; the same city he was running away from!….God sure has a sense of humour.

Often God sends a storm to get our attention and lead us to a place where we are ready to do his will.

Yesterday at church we were told to pause and listen to what God is saying.

Perhaps that storm raging in your life right now is a hurricane with your own name on it!….Time to pause, reset then go!

Good morning!
