With a sigh of relief did I finish planting my pansies in the fresh soil when I felt a few raindrops. The drops became a stream of rain that filled gutters, water barrels and enriched the just seeded fields with the so needed moisture.

Hopefully the rain also reached some of the areas being devastated with fires north and east of us. Many a prayer went up thanking God for the rain.

How often do we send up our prayers and we do not receive our answer right away? We do not know the will of the Lord. I came to Manitoba 28 years ago and my plan was to stay for one year and help in a Bible Camp. God had different plans and I thank Him for showing me His will. It is easier to tell those around us to live just one day at a time, than for us to leave the control in God’s hand.

Paul tells us in Ephesians 1:11 “……...according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will.”

His will for us is perfect.
