Life can feel like a ferris wheel—one moment you are up high, enjoying the amazing view. You can see the city lights, and you feel like you are on top of the world. The next thing you know, you come down again.
Life is full of ups and downs. That’s just the rhythm of life—what goes up must come down. No matter how perfect your life might look on the outside, even if it looks like you have it all together, things will always go wrong eventually. And you never know how long it’ll take for the bad days to end. Sometimes it may be a bad day, a bad week, a bad month, or sometimes even a whole year.
Life has different seasons, and each teaches us something new. It’s the dark days of winter that make us appreciate the sunny days of spring. Without bad moments, you wouldn’t be able to savor the good ones.
When your head is clouded with negative thoughts; it’s easy to feel like the sun will never come out again. But after a cloudy, rainy day, you will see a colorful rainbow burst through the layer of opaque clouds and into the blue skies above you.
No matter how bad the weather looks and how gloomy clouds might seem, that blue sky is always up there. No matter how horrible the things you experience may be, what’s coming is definitely better. Your current struggles don’t compare to the better things that lie ahead, and that is the truth to buoy us through even the most difficult days.
There will be moments when your strength will be tested, and it will be difficult to look at the bright side of things. But these are the moments when you need to believe in yourself more. You need to find the strength within yourself to break through the ominous clouds. Even when the clouds do not seem to break, keep in mind that the sun is always there, even if you can’t see it.
This is something you need to remember on your worst days: you’re a strong person. You can’t escape the pain, and some days it’ll fall down on you like the rain, but you must keep your faith. Believe in yourself and move on beyond the bad days. You’ve had rough patches before and you’ve gotten through them, learned from them, and thrived. You have been there before, and you will survive one more time. Whatever challenges you’re facing, you’re more than capable of overcoming them.
This is your reminder that the worst days will end, and there is something better is around the corner. If struggles are raining down on you, you will soon be showered with blessings. You never know what God is doing behind the scenes; you never know what his plans may be. You may feel like things won’t improve, but this is your reminder that it really does get better.
The same way a rainbow comes after a storm. The same way spring comes after winter. The same way that you will find something beautiful around the corner.
God has something prepared for you that you can’t see yet. It’s waiting for you, you just have to make it there.
