It's Raining - On the Inside! - Cokiesha Robinson

"Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you." 1Peter 5:7

Not long ago, I came home from a busy workday. As soon as I opened the front door, I heard a thunderous sound of water. Exhausted and startled, I dropped my purse. Where was the water sound coming from? I knew I hadn’t left the shower on and I prayed the water pump hadn’t burst. What could that noise be? I walked from room to room searching for the culprit.

Then, water dripped on my head and face. I felt it every time I walked into the living room, down the hallway and into our home office. I soon discovered the sound increased when I walked into the closet in our guest room. To my amazement, water from a neighbor’s condominium upstairs poured into ours on the first floor. I couldn’t stop it! It looked like an indoor waterfall. The more I mopped, the more the water rained down. Water was everywhere. I pulled out every trash can and bucket that we had and placed them throughout the house. I even called my husband who was traveling, as if he could help.

It seemed never ending and I just wanted the problem to go away. Who has ever heard of it raining on the inside? Every drop of water that fell onto our pictures, books, clothes and carpet, represented little drops of trouble.

Do you ever feel that way? Have you ever had a long day only to get home and be confronted with problems? Do you ever feel as though the inside of your life has rain pouring in?

Later in the week, everything dried and we had little damage. What once seemed overwhelming and hopeless was not so bad after all. Who knows why some things happen? The blessing is that God doesn’t allow us to walk alone. In the middle of life’s storms, when the rain pelts us relentlessly, remember Jesus’ command to the storm—“Peace, be still!”
