     Well the forecast included a much needed rain today but so far it's a no show here.  We had the thunder but no form of water from the sky to go with it.  Does that lead me to believe it's never going to rain or does it mean just a longer wait?  God supplies all our needs at His appropriate timing.  It is our job to have faith in that promise and to trust that He knows best.
     Waiting on the right timing for things teaches us patience, self control and perserverance.  If it's worth fighting for then it's worth waiting for..whatever the case may be.  A friend is now between jobs and is waiting to hear whether God will keep them here or take them to a new place to live.  I'm sure the wait has not been an easy one.  Sometimes its easy to take the guaranteed road than to just surrender to His clear direction with time.
     We could disillusion ourselves with a rain dance by thinking we have any control over things.  We could rush decisions without the Lord's will in mind.  We should tho pray for our needs and trust in His provisions all the time.

No strength of our own, nor goodness we claim;
Our trust is all thrown on Jesus’ name:
In this our strong tower for safety we hide;
The Lord is our power, “The Lord will provide.” —Newton
