Blue Skies and Cloudy Days


Blue skies and abundant sunshine - that is my kind of day. When the skies are cloudy and gray, I must remind myself…the sun is still shining right where it was yesterday when skies were blue.

The sun is still there on the other side of those gray clouds. God perfectly placed it there ninety three million miles from earth just where it needs to be to sustain life on this planet. The sun has not moved.

So is God, still shining, still working, still doing what He does. Don’t forget that on your cloudy days, He is still there!

Of course we prefer blue skies and sunshine. Of course we love a more visible evidence of His presence and working in our lives.

Here is the truth, for our faith to stretch and grow we must believe He is still there even though there are days when the clouds may appear to block our view.

This is so important to understand. God is still with us on the days when the skies are not blue. There is not a cloud that can dim the brightness of the sun, or cloud or storm that can lessen the power of our God. 

What is the cloud or storm in your life? Health issues, financial matters, marital problems, family problems, trust issues, fear? We are incapable of moving those clouds one inch for the sun to come shining through again.

But we can move the clouds of fog in our mind that make us feel like He has moved away from us. We must choose to push them away with the truth of God’s Word that He goes with us and never leaves us, whether it is blue skies or a cloudy day.


“For the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” ~ Deuteronomy 31:6
