We’ve had no rain in Perth for months, but I land on the Gold Coast recently and 300MM the day I arrived.
I grumbled for months about no rain, then grumbled for a week about too much!
Why can’t I have a Goldilocks amount of rain?
Not too much, Not too little?
Perhaps You’ve seen Sports star posters with the verse on it - ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’
Turns out that it is not about shooting hoops, running faster or throwing furthest.
It’s about being content in the not-so goldilocks moments
- Whether I’ve got a little - I can be content
- Whether I’ve got a lot - I can be content
The secret is - according to the context - Having Jesus
Jesus gives us the strength to cope with the extremes
Not because of us, but because of him
Rain or Shine
