I have a summer house in the back garden. It is maybe a bit strange to use ‘summer’ for anything in Scotland. Then again it stops the rain from falling on my head. One day I looked out and Trish was sitting in the summer house. I was supposed to fix the roof but never got it started.
I decided for my birthday I would use the money for some expensive paint, I would fix the leaky roof. I then decided it needed waterproof tape to repair the leaky felt, which I was going to paint over.
I went to a local store and asked advice on the best tape to use. I was given advice but looked at the cost. The advice was to use a certain tape I refused and bought a cheaper variety.
The following day I taped up the roof seams and brushed off the dirt. I began to paint. When I finished it I hoped it would rain the next day to test if it worked.
It never rained. ( remember this is Scotland)
I thought I would use up the rest of the paint after a few days. I hoped it would rain.
It never rained.
I painted it for a third time. I still have some paint left today!!!!
It rained today.
The worst part of the roof is leak free but a different part is now leaking.
This is like my walk with Jesus I try and stop doing certain things, but it keeps happening. This is a bit like the roof leaking.
I ask advice of Jesus through prayer, he advises me what to do in the bible. I choose not to take the advice and try things my self. Just like buying the tape.
If I refuse advice from Jesus am I doing it His way or my way?
Today I am waiting for the rain to stop.
The roof continues to drip, drip, it keeps dripping!!!!!!!
