It Can’t Rain Forever
When we don’t feel His Love, we need to just know and remember His Love. We need to have Faith that it’s there, in the same way we know the sun is still there even when we can’t see it through the rain clouds.
Hello Readers, hope all’s well. Time for another post.
Around when I wrote today’s post (which is about a month before the posts go live), I was having a hard time. As usual, I’ve been fighting a bitter and painful battle against my demons and sins. Shortly before I wrote this, things weren’t going so well. But by the day I finished the editing and scheduled this to go live, things were already much better. And hey, that’s life, isn’t it??

Little off-the-map spots like this are one benefit to living in the rural countryside. They make for a great escape from the stress of life and a way to enjoy God’s beautiful creation, nature. And since it’s a local ‘backwoods’ spot that isn’t on the map, no government official can ever shut this place down for COVID-they don’t know it’s here!!
As I said, a few days before writing this I was feeling down and depressed. I have reason to…
