Righteous Rain

‘Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the LORD, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.’ (Hosea 10:12)

We all need a little righteous rain today, don’t we? Last night we received the snow and I stood outside when I got home from work and marveled at the work of the Lord. Every now and then it is good to do that, just breathe and absorb things that you cannot even imagine creating on your own. I do this a lot also when I feed Christian in the middle of the night. I lay him in my lap backwards and just let him stare at me for a minute. He seems as fascinated with me as I am with him. I sang him to sleep the other night and the only appropriate song I could think of that would soothe him was Mark Lowry‘s “Mary did you know?”. While I sang it to him I started to feel a little overwhelmed. Think about it, the same loving Father of all, that molded and breathed life into his very own son in the womb of the virgin Mary, made time somewhere in is unimaginably packed schedule to make this little bundle of joy that is staring back at me. To go even farther, I have heard in my life that no two snowflakes are alike. That also means that while molding his son and my own much later down the time-line that he handcrafted every single snowflake that has fallen to the ground, the curves, the grooves, the specific temperature of each one. My conclusion, my God is a BIGGER God that the wildest imaginations could conjure up. He is very real, and he loves us very much. Take a little time today to think about the handiwork that you could never achieve…..but he can.
God Bless

    Another inspiring read. You amaze me, just think it wasn’t very long ago that you said you would never go to church because the roof might cave in. Now look at you. I am so proud of you, you will never know just how much that I love you.
