Dry times are difficult to go through. It is where I am right now. These times are like being depressed except you’re not. Life’s battles have not gotten harder, it just feels like you have given all that you have and there is nothing left. But…taking the effort that you have left over and utilizing it to its best use tends to show later on that you can do more with less energy than you think.
These times will test you. You will come home grouchy and gripe at everyone, thinking that you are just acting normal until you do something that takes you outside of yourself to see how much of a pain you are being.
You may get up in the morning and think that talking to God is the last thing that you want to do…but…these are the times when He longs to hear from you. “Cast your cares on Him for He cares for you.”
Talk to Him like He is your actual living father. After all, He is. He is the father that our fathers could never be because of their human frailties. You can unload on Him. Its ok.
Sometimes you have to think about people like Moses and how he talked to God. “Lord God of Israel, your chosen people are such a pain! And we are slaves! And I am not a leader! I talk with a stutter! Why don’t you choose my brother? He is better at this kind of stuff. He beats everybody at checkers and cornhole. People love him but they just look at me and wonder why I cannot be more like him. Why me?”
Do you think that he may have been much of a complainer?
God wants to use us anyway because we are His instruments. You have the choice to be used of Him or let someone else. But He wants to talk to you.
Talk to Him…again…like He is the perfect daddy. Because He is.
Know that this is just a short season in your life and He will give you nourishment to where your thirst will go away and your dry times will become profitable and productive, spiritually and physically.
