Many years ago, my husband and I, replaced the roof on our house. Our whole family worked together to remove those old shingles. The new roof was good for nearly twenty years. We decide that it was time to replace it again. The State of Florida was in a drought, the perfect time to get the job done. But, as everyone knows, once you take off the protective layer of shingles, the heaven will open up and pour out it's blessings. What was once dry and cozy became a sieve, filtering the water right into our house! What a mess it left! Like the protection of our roof that once kept out the rain, maybe your protective barrier is blocking your blessings. We sometimes become so hardened by past hurts that our hearts can't receive what God has waiting for us. It takes prayer and trust to remove barriers. If you're going through a dry spell, start taking off some layers, then watch it rain!
And I will make them and the places all around my hill a blessing, and I will send down the showers in their season; they shall be showers of blessing. Ezekiel 34:26
