Thanking God In All Circumstances
Yesterday I was moving a lot of stuff into our new apartment. Trip after trip, from the car to the apartment and back again. I noticed that the rain had stopped, so I prayed, "Thank you, Father, for this break in the weather."
I carried that load into the apartment, and then, when I came back outside, it was raining again.
Me: "Aw, God, what's up with this? I just said thank you for the good weather, and now it's raining again."
God: "In everything give thanks."
God: "You know I'm not in the habit of repeating myself when I speak to you."
