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.
