There are so many chores for us to do! Cleaning, dusting, mopping, sweeping, and laundry. But aren’t you thankful for the modern appliances with which we have to do these things?
I am reading a historical novel right now. In it the female character has to use a washtub, washboard, and a troubling stick for her laundry. I had never heard the term troubling stick before. I understand the concept though. More than I want!
How many times have we felt like we were in the hot water of a washtub, being scrubbed over the washboard, and Satan was taking that troubling stick he has, poking and pushing us over and over making us twist and turn in the awful dirty water? Life can be like this so many times whether by our own making or someone else’s choices.
Someone recently asked me how do I know God is real. My first answer was, I just know deep inside. How do I know God is real? He has been with me in the washtub of this life so far. He has brought me through the poking and pushing in the dirty water mostly of my own making. He will be there for me wherever I am……..just as He always has been. Thank you, God!
