Underneath the Drip! Are you so blindsided by what you don’t have that you fail to see what’s right under your nose? What about the days when it seems like the world is against you and nothing you do is working? Remember that one thing that you knew was a sure go and it turned out to be a mistake in the end? You cried your heart out because you just knew she was the one. You spent hours in the kitchen preparing his favorite meal because you were told, “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Well, all is not lost! There are times when we are getting exactly what we need for growth from a very unlikely source. We are so conditioned to micromanaging our results that we can overlook our blessings.
During my bible study today there was this story about a man who saw a beautiful flower growing up through a crack in the concrete. He wondered how did this plant manage to survive with such hostile surroundings. When he looked up he saw that there was an air conditioning unit dripping water directly above the plant. The plant received the help it needed from the water above. We are just like that plant. We need to appreciate the help that is sent even if the source is not what we expected. Are you underneath the drip?
