One of my goals was to clean my house while my family was gone. As I was concentrating on the task at hand, going through a pile of "papers" left on the kitchen counter, I came across a little sheet of paper. Realizing it was my daughter's handwriting, I thought I had come across a note or something. Much to my surprise I found a little burst of "joy." God sent me a little reminder...
I soon realized that the skies had turned dark. In a matter of moments they let loose and fed the dry grounds. We needed the rain so bad and here it was pouring "coolness" and relief with every drop. As I heard the raindrops splash against the windows, I felt like God had sent a shower to pour over me and refresh me as well.
"As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God." Psalm 42:1
It is on those "dry" days when I realize the most how much I long for the Lord. When everything is just kind of "blah," I realize I need His shine more than ever. I am so thankful for a Savior who desires to "pour" life into us and shower us with blessings everyday, even when we want to be all moody and sometimes difficult.
I've said it before and I will say it again; GOD IS GOOD.
Oh, and in case you were wondering what the sheet of paper said, here it is, in my daughter's handwriting...it doesn't get much better than this....Have a great day!
