Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.” (James 1:2 NLT)

During one particularly turbulent time of life & ministry, I was growing more & more discouraged. Things just seemed to keep getting darker, hopeless. Then one day, someone made a statement that began to change me: “You know, on the other side of every storm are rainbows waiting to be seen”.

No storm of life lasts forever. They serve to make us stronger for the journey. But afterwards, God ALWAYS brings a season of joy & refreshing to follow. They are opportunities for joy to blossom! Tough times only serve to help us appreciate the good that follows!

As you come to church today, come ready to be refreshed. Where God is, darkness can’t be. Friends will gather around to lift up arms of encouragement. Be blessed today to either find your joy or to know that it’s coming, like the inevitable rainbow after a storm! You are loved today!
