Loving the rain
The weather suddenly changed. Many people would say for the worse but rainy weather is my favourite kind of weather! So, I get to be thankful for a nice really day :)
As I was driving to work, I saw the raindrops on my window and thought of how the rain washes over the earth. It made me think of how God washed us and refreshes us when we are in the dry season. When the rain comes, for me it is a reminder that He washes us clean, giving us new mercies every day. Today, I needed to hear that from Him...
...and for that I am truly, truly THANKFUL...
“The rain and snow come down from the heavens
and stay on the ground to water the earth.
They cause the grain to grow,
producing seed for the farmer
and bread for the hungry.11
It is the same with my word.
I send it out, and it always produces fruit.
It will accomplish all I want it to,
and it will prosper everywhere I send it.12
You will live in joy and peace."
