An African-American preacher in Alabama during the Dust Bowl scheduled a special prayer service to pray for rain. The church was packed out with folks from far and wife.
The preacher stepped into the pulpit, scanned the assembled congregation, and told everyone, “Y’all can head on home. This service is over!”
The people protested, “But we’ve not prayed for rain!”
“Won’t do a lick of good,” the preacher replied. “Ain’t none of you brought their umbrella!”
Don’t corner something meaner than you.
Thought for the day
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
You may be facing a dead end right now—financial, emotional, or relational—but if you will trust God and keep on moving in faith, even when you don’t see a way, he will make a way.
