When You're in a Drought, Turn on the Sprinklers

There will be dry days.

Not just outside, but inside.

There will be days, perhaps even weeks or months where you feel that you’ve lost your flare. Perhaps you’ll feel that way about your marriage or maybe it will be your faith walk.

There is a perfect solution to every drought.

Turn on the sprinkler.

You have the ability to shift your mental focus. You have the ability to change the game.

When you’re in a time of drought, figure out what your main negative emotion is and push the opposite of it, hard.

If you feel alone and separated from you wife, go cuddle with her.

If you feel like you’re not getting anything out of your prayer life, change the routine.

You are the only variable that you can control. Don’t wait for a solution to magically present itself. You never know when the sky is going to cooperate.

Be the rain.
