Sometimes, not only the rain, but your buckets as well, are handed to you from above.
Sometimes it’s taken out of your hands to determine where you should go, what you should do and how it should be done. Sometimes you are Joseph, captured and tied to a destiny too great for you to fathom.
Sometimes you need to be quiet and just do what needs to be done. Do the best with whatever you’re given—honestly and earnestly. And put your confidence in your real Employer.
