My house remained still and quiet all morning this lazy Saturday morning. It was aided by the fresh rain that fell on the roof all night and all morning. It was such a peaceful and welcome morning.
There is something beautifully relaxing about a Texas spring rain. It is always such a gift and blessing, especially during times of drought. It is also a hopeful sign that wildflowers and new life is about to spring up.
This morning as I am grateful for the fresh rain falling outside my window, I more deeply desire a fresh rain to fall on my soul. A rain that will soak up the dry and thirsty ground that exists deep in my soul. A rain that will bring forth signs of new life springing up inside of me.
As each drop falls outside my window, it is accompanied by a continued conversation with God. An ongoing conversation in which we have both become familiar. A conversation about Him sending His fresh rain to relieve the drought in my soul.
How strong is your need/desire for a fresh rain? What are the signs of drought that your soul is showing?
