As I was doing dishes in our burning hot house, sweat dripping off of me, I heard the Lord's kind, gentle voice say (not audibly, but in my heart), "Are you content in all circumstances? Have you learned to love me, to love your family, to love others, even when you feel uncomfortable?" I shared this with Ray... we both felt conviction in our hearts. We refocused our eyes and saw that this trial, and yes this is a trial in our lives, is testing our faith in our Father. We know that these things that we are going through right now are only working in out lives to prepare us for whatever the Lord calls us to in the future.
We are now feeling nice and cool, sitting in our friends apartment. We are learning what it means to be content in ALL circumstances... Our faithful Father is turning up the HEAT just a little to remind us where our hope and trust lie.
|this is not todays actual weather, but it is what we have been seeing the past few days... whew!|
