As you may know we Californians are in a drought. We have a very serious shortage of water. But as I write this, here on the Central Coast where I live, we are enjoying a healthy cleansing rain that is predicted to last all day! I’m so excited for my plants and flowers and shrubs. They are drinking up each drop!
This experience reminds me of all the times I’ve needed a good spiritual shower. I’ve been dull and dry, and gray and grim. And the only thing that can revive me is a full blast of the grace of God–mine for the asking. “Dear Lord, rain your love over me.” And he does . . .
“He covers the heavens with clouds,
provides rain for the earth,
and makes the grass grow in mountain pastures.” (Psalm 147:8)
“For the Lord your God is living among you.
He is a mighty savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” (Zephaniah 3:17)
If, like me, you could benefit from a good cleansing rain in your life, It is there for the asking. If you wish, share your experience with us. How has God revived you in a season of drought?
