Time #3…I’ve tried to go running. I look out. It’s raining. I head back to my computer. When I look up, it is clear so I gear up again, just in time for it to start again. So, after the third attempt, I guess it is time to resolve to using the treadmill. It’s not such a bad back up plan. I am going to read my new devotional book and talk with Jesus; He’s great company.
Sometimes life feels like today. It’s raining. Finances are tight. Kids get in trouble. Things you want to happen just don’t seem to come together. Then it stops; only to start again.
I was reminded yesterday while reading the book “Lies Women Believe and the Truth That Sets Them Free”, that most of us have bought into a lie. That is, that life is suppose to be good and smooth and when it is not, something is wrong. But that really isn’t what Jesus said at all. In fact, in James 1, He tells us that if our lives are full of difficulties we are to be happy, for then our faith has a chance to grow.
So, when you see those rain clouds forming again, ask the Lord what is He up to. How can you partner with Him to become more like Him? That rain is going to be exactly what your life needs to bring that incredible garden. I can’t wait to see what is going to grow next!
