What box have you prepared for the Lord?  You know, the package that you have

pre-determined in your mind in which He is going to fill with the answers to your prayers? 

Oh, it's just me who does that. ; )

It is on my heart to share some of the contents of what the Lord allowed me to pour out in Sunday School yesterday morning.  Let's talk about the hard road, the in-between season, the wilderness...let's talk about Job.
