The Leak

Agape Celebration, our ministry house has a leak.  Several years ago, this house was our home, and my father in-law built a mud room off our side door. It has been a great place to put the boots, coats, and just stuff. Especially in the winter when the kids come in from the wet and the cold they need a place to put their wet boots and the snow suits, the mud room is perfect. Well, the perfect mud room has developed a leak over the years, and it seems that every year my husband either calls someone in to try to fix it or he attempts to fix it himself. But, this leak has been very persistent, and it continues to come back, drip, drip, drip. 
Finally, a few days ago, we called a friend. Realizing that the leak was probably more serious than we dare to speak, we asked him to take a look, so he did. And, it's true, it's pretty serious. It's like stage 4 cancer.
Drip, drip, drip!
Let me just say this, the mud room no longer exist, right at this moment. It was a surprise to our friend that the wall was actually standing, it was so rotten inside! Drip, drip, drip! He had to tear the entire wall down, even the door is bad. Everything had to go. He has started all over, rebuilt from the bottom up. Drip, drip, drip. 
It needs to be renewed, and restored. It was badly damaged. Drip, drip drip.
Thanks to Jesus for binding up my wounds! Thanks for rescuing me, for tearing down my walls of isolation, deceit, depression, illness, and despair. Thanks for covering me in His blood, for His redemption, His love. Thank you Jesus for fixing the leaks at the cross, for bringing me through the drips. All the drips. 
Jesus, Say that Again, You know every drip in my life, and You will bring me through every one of them!
