Rain can come across as gloomy, dreary and depressing; sometimes it is. But rain is essential for growth and development. We all come to a space and time where we need to be nourished and hydrated. Lack of water causes fatigue and may kill an amazing seed. Your dream and passion lives as a seed, it has the potential to grow and become life changing, but you have to do the appropriate things in each season. Great seed in amazing soil is still fruitless if there is no water from time to time. Some of us run so passionately toward a goal or purpose, that we become dismayed when the season of rain comes. But I’m here to tell you, bask in the rain, take that time to look inward and see what needs watering in your life, then when the sun comes back out you will not only appreciate it, but gleam in its season. Instead of running from the rain, take your seed before God and allow Him to pour His love, enrichment, and life over it so that it can grow past your wildest imagination.

Don’t always be the last one to apologize. Pride keeps us from progressing from one place in life to the next. Our inability to see someone else’s point of view creates a wall that will always separate you from a worthwhile relationship, if you allow it to be between you and an apology. The misconception is that apologizing is accepting defeat, when really it’s an opportunity to acknowledge the other person’s feeling and perspective. An apology is a way to say I hear you and didn’t mean to hurt you. Today’s challenge is putting your pride down and picking up compassion.
