Every morning when I wake up, one of the first things I do is grab my phone and check the weather.
Every single day it tells me two main things.
It tells me that today is going to have a high and today is going to have a low.
Without fail, it is always right.
Usually the peak of the day is where the high comes in and in the darkness of the early morning or late evening is where the low comes. But everyday…it happens.
However, this is not just true of the weather.
This is also true of most days for us as humans living life.
Everyday there is going to be a high and there is going to be a low.
In fact most days, the high comes at the peak of whatever your day is wrapped around.
That moment is awesome. You are happy, you are smiling, you are ready to conquer the world, you are ready to take it all by storm.
But then…the low hits. Maybe it is in the darkness of the early morning or the quiet of a dark night, but inevitably it comes.
- The lie
- The pain
- The hurt
- The gossip
- The fear
- The unrest
- The fight
- The bad marriage
- The rebellious child
- The diagnosis
- The uncertainty
- The low…
In fact the low seems to consume the high of the day. You don’t want it too, but for some reason the low voice screams way louder than the high voice.
It seems that it is the only voice we hear some days. In fact some days you would kill to hear just a glimpse of the high for your day or your life.
Hold firm though…just like everyday has a weather pattern that has a high and a low, every life journey will be met with hi’s and low’s.
But remember that each day has new mercies and new high’s that God longs to speak into you.
Today may we rest knowing that God is with us in the low’s and he provides the high’s.
