    It Won’t Rain Always

     “Rejoice, you people of Jerusalem! Rejoice in the LORD your God! For the rain he sends demonstrates his faithfulness. Once more the autumn rains will come, as well as the rains of spring.” – Joel 2:23 Rain rain go away, come again another day!

    Ouch

    The other day I noticed a small splinter in my finger.  It hurt so bad, that it affected me the whole day because that’s all I could concentrate on .  To be honest it’s still there!  It’s amazing how the smallest of things can hold our attention.  The smallest of afflictions can become strongholds, and affect everything we do. An affliction is something that causes pain or unhappiness.  Sometimes we fight it and other times we simply learn to live with it.  We ask it to move in with us.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t do well with roommates.  And the old saying, “Misery loves company,” is…
