So the other day I was having a really bad day. I got in a bad fight with my best friend, school was not going well for me, and everything in my life was falling apart. I was driving home and it was dusk outside. The sun was setting and it was absolutely GORGEOUS! I looked at the sky and I saw this beautiful sunset cloud. It had some swirls and echoed the color pink. I looked at this cloud and thought “man, God is so good!”
In the middle of this crazy and terrible day he gave me this cloud. I get it, it sounds kind of stupid, but hear me out… Sometimes life can be stinky and everything can go wrong. At times it feels like the entire world is against you. God knows our struggle, because y’all… He has been there! He has felt what I felt up close and personal. But what is so awesome about this is He sees our pain and He goes, “Eleanor, I love you. Those people are hurting you, not me. So I am going to place tiny blessings in your life just to show you how much I love you.”
I looked at this cloud and I was thinking God is so awesome. I don’t have room in my life for bitterness or anger. I need to love everyone. Life sucks for everyone not just me.
Whenever you are having a bad day… Look at the clouds!
