Rain, Rain, Go Away...

Well, if you think we're getting blessed with all the sunshine down here, think again!  We might still be able to wear shorts and tank tops, but it's been raining cats and dogs most days.  The birds woke me up with their racket.  I'm watching green parrots chase each other and use their beaks to climb up the branches-at least they seem to enjoy these dull days.  Let's hope the toucan doesn't swoop down upon this bird paradise.
Then again, it's starting to sound worse than a pet shop out here.

I've been thinking about a lot of things lately, including our future in ministry, writing a book, starting a family...you know, the usual.  Life often resembles this alleyway, where you can only see a few steps ahead of you, and the rest is a mystery.  

Thankfully, the future is not a mystery to our God.  We need to learn to depend on Him, and trust that He will lead us in His path. 

I posted this verse to Facebook yesterday, but I want to share it again here, because it is so beautiful and completely encapsulates the need for our dependence on God:

If you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday. The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. ~isaiah 58:10-11

Praise God for His encouraging words in our lives, even on rainy days such as these.

There is always much to think about when you are reassessing the mysterious plans for the future but as you said, God is in change and He knows what we have yet to find out.

That was a very good verse you posted to focus on and to draw strength from as you seek His will for your lives.

We will continue to pray that He will guide you in the days ahead.
