Lift Conversations

Have you ever had this conversation in a lift (elevator)?

"Beautiful day, isn't it?" "Yeah, but we really need the rain."

Or how about this one, on the next day...

"Sure glad it's raining out, we really need it." "Yeah, but too much will contaminate the water supply."

You know, you try to have a casual, pleasant conversation that will last until you get to your floor. Is pleasant agreement too much to ask for?

What do you expect from a friendly conversation? Beware, you may get more than you asked for. Sometimes on a blog, the simplest of comments can create the most complex responses. Turns out, we're not as predictable as we may seem.

However, when you come to God with hope in Him, He always will respond with love. You can depend upon Him every time.

Isaiah 26:4 (MSG)
4 Depend on God and keep at it because in the Lord God you have a sure thing.

Up here in Kaniva (Victoria)there are no lifts for at least 100km, if not more. However, the conversations are still all about rain, or the lack of it. So far for the year we are on about 7mm, most of which fell in the last few days.Too much rain is not something we have had to worry about for years. We know God loves us and learning to depend on Him more and more each day.A good season may be doubtful, but God remains a sure thing.

A blog is like a sermon! You say one thing and everyone else hears another thing. In the case of a sermon we say God speaks to everyone in different ways. I wonder how God uses a blog site?

"I wonder how God uses a blog site?" Just check out the Former SA Officer blog site and you'll see. It's great!
