Warned and Ready

After a rough night with an allergic flare, I was walking around in a Benadryl fog. I opened my Bible and the first sentence did not encourage me!

John 16:1, “I’ve told you these things to prepare you for rough times ahead.” The Message

It was one of those days where you want to go back to bed and sleep until tomorrow!

John 16:4, “I’ve told you these things so that when the time comes and they start in on you, you’ll be well-warned and ready for them.” The Message

It warned me that the day would be difficult and I decided to do the hard things anyway.

John 16:33, “I’ve told you these this so that trusting me, you will be unshakeable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.” The Message

My project for the day was caulking the wood trim around the windows. I started with the window in my office. That small window cracked everywhere possible! It took me an hour to fill them all in. (A near-sighted perfectionist should never pick up a caulk gun!) I managed to caulk all the windows and hang the curtains back up before David got off work.
