"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house." Matthew 5:14-15

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it." Matthew 13:45-46

Rainy Day

Some people are depressed when there is a rainy day. I always enjoy whether we have a rainy or sunny day. Today we are having a rainy day. Originally I planned to walk early this morning with a dear friend, but we changed plans because it was pouring at the time. This allowed me an opportunity to get a little more rest this morning, which was an unexpected blessing.

As I thought about the beauty of a rainy day, God also reminded me about the importance of letting Him reign in my life. It must be a daily choice and decision to allow Him to be in control of my life. I desire for Him to always be in the center of my life.

I was struck by a couple sentences in Priscilla Shirer's book, He Speaks to Me this afternoon. She said, "When God wants to do something out of the ordinary, can He look to you or me? Or will He have to bypass us because we've become too set in our ways?" I don't know about you my friend, but I desire to be a woman that says "Yes!" to God. I don't want to become so set in my ways that I don't allow the Holy Spirit to move in my heart. I desire for each day to be a "Reigny Day" where Christ reigns in my heart and life.

I was JUST talking about this to my husband last night. I think many times we, as Christians, tend to get too set in our ways to hear Him speak to us. Thank you for posting this. I love stormy mornings. It's the perfect opportunity for cocoa and hot oatmeal. ;O)
