What's a God to do?

I'm thinking of those hot summer days when God is perplexed. A young woman has planned her wedding for over a year and it's going to be outdoors. She's prayed like crazy, begging God for a beautiful summer day. Yet her dad is a farmer and he has seen too many hot summer days. He's also prayed like crazy for rain. What is God to do?

That scenario is not at all unlike Christmas. Churches every where are praying that the world may see Jesus is the true reason for the season. They have extra services and special events all designed to turn people's hearts towards Jesus Christ. They pray. But I also hear them complain. Many Christian people are sick and tired of the over emphasis on the commercialization of Christmas. They want it stopped.

Yet in every congregation, there are business owners who are also praying. For many of the this Christmas season is hectic but also profitable. Some earn half of the year's profits (or more) from the Christmas season. Christmas sales put food on the table and pay employee bonuses. And they pray fervently that this season will be no different. And when sales have been good they praise God for providing for their family, all the while their fellow church members complain.
