Under the baptistery

Last night, I was around the baptistery in the church while two of our men were working on it. I will go ahead and admit that they were were working, I was watching. Moving on...something we discovered is that to do the work that needs to be done up there, we need to turn off the water to the faucet in the baptistery. There's a little problem. When the church was built, they didn't put a cut-off for the baptistery water. So, this is going to be a little harder than it should have been, because it's a fix that wasn't expected to need to be made. In fact, between me, David Hooker, Tony Adams, and Spencer, we couldn't really find where the water pipes come from or go to. We spent a lot of time in the ceiling, under the baptistery, and in other dark, dusty, hidden spaces. With only one flashlight.

Sometimes our lives develop that way. We face challenges that we are totally unprepared for, and can't find the way to fix it ourselves. Fortunatley, we aren't here by some cosmic accident, nor were we put together by someone who didn't know what was going on. All of us are here by intention of the Great I AM, who has made the heavens and the earth. We can go to him for help. And He doesn't have to crawl around in the places in our hearts that we have made dark and dusty, because His light will illuminate all that is within us. His word will help us to see ourselves and understand where we need to go. And He will be our strength.
