Clouds (3)

Maybe you have read this saying: “Every cloud has a silver lining.” Sometimes storm clouds look silvery on their edges. This happens when sun rays bounce off moisture in the clouds.
But this saying is not really talking about clouds. It is talking about circumstances in our lives. When something bad happens to me, I only think about my terrible situation. But I also need to notice the good things that are happening in my life because of that bad situation.
Maybe I become sick — that is like the storm cloud. But because of my sickness, I become closer to God — that is like the silver lining. In every situation we face, we can find good things that are happening, too.
Our Bible Reading tells us that even though bad things happen to us, God can make good things happen, too. Maybe you are facing a bad situation today. Ask God to help you see the good things that He is doing in your life.
