“The rains'' could be your parents who divorced or are separated or just fighting all the time, like when Erin’s parents separated.
“The rains'' could be someone you love who is old and you’re afraid might die, as Erin feared. Since her parents were older when she was born and people asked her if they were her grandparents.
“The rains'' could be when someone you love is sick.
Sometimes “the rains” are money problems that pour down on your family.
Every day does it feel like there are more and more problems and things that cause you to worry? Are there too many stumbling blocks, obstacles, and hurdles that continue raining down blocking your path? Each of these is “the rains” you can be protected from by first putting on the full armor of God so that it may go well with you, and so you may live long on the earth and save many more people alive! Just listen and obey your parents who God chose to guide you as you read in River of Life.
Are you or is your family living in a home that has fallen or feels like it’s about to fall?
Have your parents separated or divorced so you no longer feel happy and safe?
Have you heard that there's nothing you can do?
Maybe YOU can’t do anything— BUT God can!
God can do anything—and GOD loves to show up to do the impossible! Remember reading that in Macy's Barn Cat and Horses Hoped For when God said, with people it is impossible, but with God all things are possible? Because nothing, not one thing, will be impossible with God.
When Erin’s parents separated everyone said it was for the best, but that’s not how Erin felt. So Erin spoke to her Heavenly Father and God did the impossible! God restored her parents' marriage after they were separated for 9 years—so that Erin’s children were able to visit both grandparents after she grew up and had children! And both her parents lived a very long life too!! Remember, nothing, not one thing will be impossible with God.
Just imagine how foolish and sad it could have been if Erin believed the lies rather than trusting the goodness of the Lord and she let fear rule her life all those years!
