I have been thinking about rain, partly because of the weather report, and partly because of the analogy to life and blessing. I have always loved the gentle sound of rain on the roof. The sound brings a tranquil sense of relaxation.
But rain also infers the idea of cleansing and renewal. So in a literal sense the rain is good for the earth. In a figurative sense the rain is a part of the life cycle. But when rain is in over abundance as it has been this year we see flooding, errosion, and problems unwanted.
So the only words I have are these – Bring the rain. I am ready for it, and i know that whatever falls from the hand of God is going to be good, if for this season it seems challenging.
May we draw closer to the lord this year, and as the song says – bring me anything that brings you glory!
