This is akin to don't wait for your ship to come in, swim out to meet it. Into every life a little rain must fall. People of faith tell us the Lord will never give us more than we can handle. Sometimes I wish He didn't have so much confidence in me! Oftentimes, what appears to be an insurmountable obstacle is but a pebble in the road when we look at the big picture. There are always going to be obstacles if we look for them. Zig Ziglar says obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off your goal. An old joke has a traveller asking a local farmer during a particularly long and hard rainstorm "Do you think it will stop raining?" The wizened old timer responds "It always has before" When rain falls into your life, remember that it will stop. Don't wait for it to stop. Enjoy the experience.
