No prescription cialiseight=”225″ />While it would appear that we are waiting on rain, I would argue that we
are waiting on God.
I have to admit I haven’t been very patient lately. It took 3 rain events last week to get us just over an inch. This is approximately 6 inches less than normal for the past six weeks. To top it off, since then it has generic cialis remained dry and very HOT. Because of this, the hay crops are not growing. Jeremy is prioritizing which equipment may be for sale and my work contract is nearly up and is not being renewed. I thought the farm would be making up for my income, now that is very questionable.
Instead of focusing on what we may have to give up, we are trying very hard to focus on God’s plan for our lives and what lessons He may have for us in this dry time. We both have full confidence that one day we will look back on these days and have understanding on the “Whys”.
In the past we have lashed out at others, and played the “blame game”. But life isn’t all
about us. God can use us rich or poor, farming or unemployed. Some thoughts I’ve been holding onto:
- Having kids at a time like this is such a blessing! Paul, Ruth, and Amy not only keep us entertained but are constant reminders of what is really important.
- God’s timing is impeccable. Since Jeremy began farming fulltime in 2003, we have both grown in Christ and in our marriage. If this drought had occurred even three years ago, I know our marriage would have suffered greatly.
- We are all healthy!
- We have good educations that can take us many places.
- We are members of a wonderful church congregation that is encouraging and growing in Faith.
So we will continue to keep plodding through and doing our best for Him. While waiting, hopefully we will increase in patience, trust, and faith. I know God is using this time to teach me a lot about who I am, and who I want to be. I pray these thoughts help you while you are in your drought and waiting on God!
James 5:7 Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains. (ESV)
